Important Information:
Steps to completing the SGDA Professional Course and Internship

You can expect a intense and immersive experience with this course. You’ll have access to 12 training modules, during which you must watch each presentations as complete the quiz (pass rate = 80%) before you proceed to the next presentation.

The Internship Program is compulsory to complete your SGDA qualification.  You need to administer four (4) consecutive assessments, preferably on family members or friends. These internship tests should be submitted to SGDA Head Office for scoring directly after completion to subsequently address errors and prevent replicating them in future testing sessions.
Once these 4 internship assessments have been successfully completed, you register as a SGDA Professional and become part of the SGDA family and referral directory.

You are required to purchase a Stark Griffin dyslexia assessment package within 6 months of completing the course and receiving certification. A full version in either English or Afrikaans is available for those who want it, and half-packages are available for some alternative language.  More information about this will be provided on the completion of the Internship stage.

The recommended cost of a SGDA DYSLEXIA done by a Registered Professional is $ 2 500.
This amount includes $50 to SGDA head office for marking and report generation as well as $50 per copy of the book: Help! My Child has been diagnosed with Dyslexia. These books are available in English and Afrikaans. During comprehensive feedback sessions, parents should receive a copy of this book to enhance their understanding of this Specific Learning Disorder, called DYSLEXIA.
ICD 10 code = R 48.
