* A NOTE FROM WILSON LANGUAGE TRAINING®

Wilson Language Training® is pleased to announce the publication of the Wilson Reading System® 4th Edition in 2018! While the WRS 4th Edition program materials will be available early in 2018, the revisions to its professional learning will not be available to Wilson® Credentialed Trainers (W.C.T) until early July. As a result, all Level I Certification will be conducted in the 4th Edition beginning July 15, 2018. Until then, enrollment in Certification will not be available. For this reason, Wilson, and its Partners, will not be offering the WRS Introductory Workshop between January 1st and July 15th, 2018. We sincerely appreciate everyone’s patience while the Wilson Program Development Team completes the extensive WRS updates and enhancements. Be assured, it will be well worth the wait!
