The DuBard School for Language Disorders at The University of Southern Mississippi has received international recognition for implementing multisensory structured language education. The school was one of only four schools in the U.S. recognized by the International Multisensory Structured Language Education Council (IMSLEC).

IMSLEC School Recognition indicates a commitment to student achievement through multisensory structured language education (MSLE) as taught in IMSLEC Accredited Teacher/Therapy Training Courses. One of those teacher trainings is the DuBard Association Method®, which has has been accredited by IMSLEC since 1998.

Speech-language pathologists and teacher assistants at the DuBard School use the DuBard Association Method® daily in the school’s enrollment and outclient programs, teaching students to read, speak, and write. Furthermore, The DuBard School serves as the national training site for the method, bringing professionals and students from across the country to The University of Southern Mississippi to receive training.

“The DuBard School for Language Disorders is honored to be one of IMSLEC’s four recognized schools,” said Missy Schraeder, interim director at the DuBard School. “We work tirelessly to ensure the DuBard Association Method® is implemented with the highest standards at our school, and to train others across the country in multisensory structured language education. Most importantly, we know this methodology gives hope to families and individuals as they receive the gift of oral and written language.”
