Joellyn Hartley Dyslexia Consulting is thrilled and honored to be on the Indiana Department of Education’s approved list of dyslexia training programs!!

Why Choose Joellyn Hartley Dyslexia Consulting Training Program?

Approved: The Joellyn Hartley Dyslexia Training Program has received the seal of approval from the Indiana Department of Education. It is listed on the approved list of dyslexia training programs for educators interested in becoming an authorized reading specialist trained in dyslexia on the IDOE website.

Experience: Before Senate Enrolled Act 217 even became a bill, Joellyn Hartley was working with private schools in the State of Indiana, educating their teachers on the warning signs of dyslexia and how to properly help their dyslexic students; as well as, effectively implementing the Barton Reading & Spelling System as an intervention program.

Compact: This dyslexia training program is extremely in-depth, but does NOT require an extreme time commitment from its participants, especially when it’s compared to similar programs. Joellyn Hartley was taught by world-renowned dyslexia expert, Susan Barton. Mrs. Barton taught her dyslexia program by compiling all the needed information about dyslexia into an efficient time allotment and Joellyn has done the same with her comprehensive training program.

Cost Effective: The Joellyn Hartley Dyslexia Consulting Training Program utilizes the Barton Reading & Spelling System for the intervention component of the training program. The Barton system has a reasonable upfront cost, and an additional benefit is that it is a one-time purchase. Since it is scripted, you can train others to utilize the system for reading and spelling interventions without the additional cost of training another person. Only the first three levels of the Barton Reading & Spelling System are required to be purchased for The Joellyn Hartley Dyslexia Consulting Training Program. You can check out more pricing information on the Barton Reading & Spelling website: https://bartonreading.com/price/
