About us

IMSLE are specialists in providing accredited MSL Training and coursework in Australia

IMSLE have created a unique and dynamic training experience for those who are wanting to specialise in a structured literacy approach with the addition of a multisensory component. IMSLE have been successfully offering and delivering accredited professional development training for teachers, schools, allied professionals and others interested since 2007. 

The IMSLE Australian Associate MSL course is recognised by the Australian Dyslexia Association (ADA) for accredited membership (AMADA) and aligns with the guidelines for effective practices set down by the Australian National Inquiry Into the Teaching of Literacy (Sir Ken Rowe), National Reading Panel (USA), The Big 6 (International) and the IDA Knowledge and Practice Standards for Teaching Reading (IDA, US).

MSL is not a program where the child needs to fit the program, it is an approach where the educator is trained effectively to be flexible, diagnostic and highly knowledgeble in scientific reading principles and multisensory techniques enabling them to teach language and literacy in a direct, explicit, systematic, cumaltive and structured way.
