Candidates for the Level I Certification Practicum must have completed the Three-Day Introduction course within the past five years. 

Certification provides extensive training and support enabling teachers to effectively implement the program with integrity. Certification includes approximately 90 hours of online instruction, a 60-lesson practicum, including demonstration, observation and feedback from a Wilson trainer. The time, effort and study involved with this program are considerable. Each trainee is expected to acquire a very sophisticated working knowledge of the sound-symbol system of English (phonology) and its structure (morphology), as well as the use of specific diagnostic techniques in teaching reading and spelling.

Individuals who successfully meet all requirements of this certification training receive WRS certification (Level I).
 
The ultimate goal is to improve student achievement. By increasing teachers’ efficacy and skill, WRS certification helps to do just that, as indicated by several reports. Data from pre- and posttests of 220 students with language learning disabilities in grades 3-12 were analyzed. The average gain for Word Attack was 4.6 grade levels, Passage Comprehension was 1.6 grade levels, and Total Reading was 1.9 grade levels. At the time of instruction, the teachers were enrolled in WRS certification (O’Connor and Wilson, 1995). Similar student improvements were observed by Dr. Frank Wood, et al. (2002), in his analysis of pre- and posttest data. (See Evidence of Effectiveness for full reports.)
