There are a number of things I do in my everyday job that I do without truly understanding why. This course has given and is giving me a deeper understanding of what I do. I work with 5 - 7year old’s focusing on literacy so this course is really relevant even though I do not work with any child with diagnosed dyslexia, we use a number of strategies within this course every day. Jane Macdonald - New Zealand

I like how IOA makes things easy to understand and their courses get right to the most important and useful information. That knowledge can be used right away in the relevant line of work. I learned so much from this course. The courses are designed to present the most helpful information in a concise manner. The Dyslexia course was very well put together with lots of practical application and advice on how to put the learning into action. Peter Rowbottom – Canada

I love IOA. I have finished many courses and will continue to do so as I have tried other online schools and this one is #1. Modules are easy to comprehend and the exams are not easy, so be sure to study! Good luck on your new journey! Rosemary Villatoro – United States

I am 45 years old now and going back to school is not an option for me at this time. I needed to take something that would help me get a good scope of my options in the workforce and make it easier for me to understand the expectations and demands of my choices. This was heaven sent and it has helped me to transition to where I want to be today. Marianella Morales – United States

So happy I did this. Best decision. So fast and easy even with a special needs 7-year-old in my ear the whole time :) Trista Dahlberg - United States
