This wasn't awful, but it's very misleading. You will not receive a "Dyslexia Therapist Certification," you will receive a "Dyslexia Awareness Certification." If you want actual accreditation, you will have to pay extra for either a physical certificate or a digital one, but these will still be Dyslexia Awareness Certificates. So, it does not provide an "accredited" certificate with the purchase, and that certificate is not for a "Dyslexia Therapist." I suppose it is online though, so that's not a lie. The course itself says it should take 50 hours. You can have it done in maybe 5-8 hours, it's short and straightforward. The information is decent, and although the course materials are clearly constructed by someone with the disorder in question, which is valuable, it nevertheless is not professionally presented and is riddled with errors--while this isn't necessarily something the course creator should be responsible for, the course itself should have been reviewed by the organization for quality control. So, I've learned what I was interested in learning, it was only $10 USD, and that's about what it is worth. Can't in good conscious recommend this, even though Dyslexia Awareness is very important and worthwhile, and really Groupon should consider removing this from its catalogue for being misleading as it also reflects poorly then on Groupon.
I Highly Recommend it! They give you sixty days to complete the course - I was able to finish it in one day (took about four hours).
The exams were easy and straight forward. I will definitely use this site again.
All three courses are accredited and online, and each lasts about 50 hours.
