Teacher Support

To ensure that teachers are prepared to effectively use the Wilson Reading System® (WRS) within their schools’ Multi-tiered System of Supports (MTSS), Wilson provides comprehensive professional learning opportunities.

The WRS Introductory Workshop, WRS Level I Certification, and WRS Level II Certification programs are available and strongly recommended as they provide teachers with the necessary background and skills to teach WRS in a manner that maximizes students’ success in the program.

Presenter discussing with participants at a Wilson WorkshopWRS teachers also have online access to robust course content, additional resources (such as animated demonstrations, printable teaching aids, and weekly paired decodable/enriched text passages), and a discussion board and chat feature via the Intensive Learning Community of Wilson Academy®.

To help districts move toward sustainability, the WRS Trainer Development Program is recommended.  By developing WRS Trainers, a district ensures that all WRS teachers maintain the fidelity of implementation that results in student success.
