Carla McNeil, Managing Director of Learning MATTERS, states, “It has long been our vision to create a course aligned with the International Dyslexia Association’s Knowledge and Practice Standards. Crafted and executed in New Zealand by our highly knowledgeable team, this accomplishment represents years of passion and planning. The LMIT Certification equips participants with the skills to implement a Structured Literacy approach and contributes to advancing knowledge across New Zealand.”
The LMIT certification stands out as a leading professional development opportunity, specialising in evidence-based Structured Literacy intervention and aims to enhance knowledge and practice of intervention practitioners. It is the first course in Australasia and the second internationally to achieve an Accreditation PLUS level from the International Dyslexia Association (IDA).
Participants in the 12-month LMIT course benefit from a comprehensive curriculum that includes face-to-face learning, online modules, and a practicum, all supported by LMIT facilitators. The course is designed to empower intervention practitioners with the tools and insights to employ a diagnostic, explicit, systematic, cumulative, and multi-sensory Structured Literacy approach.
Carla says, “With our first cohort already underway, we look forward to welcoming our second cohort in January, a further cohort is scheduled to commence in July, and more planned for 2025.”
By achieving the Accreditation PLUS level from the International Dyslexia Association, Learning MATTERS reaffirms its commitment to providing high-quality, evidence-based education and professional development opportunities.
