IRA and CAEP National Recognition of Reading Specialist/Literacy Coach Programs

High-quality teaching can only be delivered by high-quality teachers—professionals who are well prepared to meet the challenges of today's classrooms and to help all children achieve. That's why the International Reading Association (IRA) is a strong advocate for outstanding teacher education and participates actively in organizations dedicated to ensuring high-quality preparation for all educators.

To support accreditation of outstanding teacher preparation programs, IRA is a specialty professional association (SPA) of the Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (CAEP), the consolidation of the former National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and the former Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC).

IRA reviews advanced programs for candidates preparing to assume specialized roles in reading education, specifically reading specialists/literacy coaches. Click here for IRA nationally recognized programs.
