The Compass tutor training program is accredited by The International Multisensory Structured Language Education Council (IMSLEC).

The following are benefits of the IMSLEC accreditation program as stated on their website.

Through accreditation of training programs, IMSLEC assists individuals with dyslexia and related disorders to reach their potential as contributing members of society.

IMSLEC is an important resource for parents, government agencies, and educational systems for the clarification of what constitutes a quality teacher training program for teachers of dyslexic students by establishing organizational criteria and evidenced-based instructional program standards for content and methodology for MSLE training courses. IMSLEC provides a directory of accredited programs, teachers, and therapists.

Accreditation of a training course assures intervention for children and adults with dyslexia is based on an alternate reading approach which has a scientific basis for its instructional procedures. Individuals with dyslexia or related disorders require a different method of teaching to match their learning differences.

Accreditation of an MSLE training course assures that the teachers or therapists trained in that program have received adequate course instruction and practicum in the skills required to produce positive, measurable results in literacy for the dyslexic population.
