About the SLANT® Introductory Course
Certification in the SLANT System® for Structured Literacy begins with a 25-hour introductory course that presents an overview of the SLANT System®, delivered over 6 days covering:
• The definition of dyslexia
• Current research in effective reading approaches,
• The brain and dyslexia
• Diagnostic assessment procedures
• The scope and sequence of the SLANT System®
• The content of a typical lesson
• Characteristics of students for whom SLANT® is appropriate
• Systematic introduction to language structure
Participants develop an overall understanding and assessment of dyslexia, an understanding of the SLANT System®, learn how to prepare a typical lesson, and gain insight into language structure.
Participants will receive necessary materials to support their instruction with their students for immediate implementation.
The introductory course is a prerequisite for full certification in the SLANT System®.
The SLANT System® provides a year long, in-depth training supervised one-to-one practicum process which can lead to certification in the use of the system. SLANT® certified teachers have demonstrated their ability to use the system with fidelity and have completed 45 hours of coursework in structured literacy instruction.

Graduate credit hours are available for both the SLANT System® Introductory Course (2 credit hours) as well as the Practicum Seminars (4 credit hours). If a participant opts to receive the graduate credit, they will be billed through and receive a transcript from Dominican University in River Forest, Illinois.
For Illinois teachers, CPDUs are provided to all participants in the introductory and practicum at no additional cost.
