"ASDEC's courses have been stimulating, edifying, and above all energizing. Language I and the Practicum gave me a powerful approach to teaching reading and writing as well as a more comprehensive understanding of the English language and language disorders. I have become a better parent and teacher, and a stronger advocate for my children and my students as a result." - Graduate of ASDEC Academic Therapy Certification program
ASDEC Onsite Courses

These courses are also open to teachers, parents, and other educators who are interested in learning the most effective multisensory strategies for teaching reading and math. We provide graduate credits through Trinity University Washington that can be used for teacher certification, salary increments, or for re-certification/seat hours, where applicable.
