Dyslexia Therapist and Dyslexia Practitioner Licensing Program Renew Your License - Requirements

To renew your license, you will need to submit the renewal form and fee to the Texas Department of State Health Services postmarked on or before the date the license expires. Renewal notices are mailed approximately 30 days prior to license expiration. Please remember that if you do not keep your address information up to date with our office, your renewal notice may not reach you! Failure to receive a renewal notice does not excuse you from paying the late fees. You may print off a blank Renewal Form found on the "Applications and Forms" web page. If you need to update your address, you will need to submit the request in writing using the Change of Address Form found on the "Applications and Forms" web page.

All licensees are required to complete 20 clock hours of continuing education during each two-year licensure period. For more information on the continuing education requirements, please select the "General Information" link found under the "Continuing Education" tab on the left side of your screen.

Selected For Audit
To ensure compliance of the continuing education requirements, DSHS randomly audits licensees.  If you are selected for audit, you must send in sufficient proof of your completed continuing education hours. Sufficient proof includes copies of your continuing education certificates that clearly show the number of completed continuing education hours.

Criminal History
All licensees are also required to disclose misdemeanor and/or felony arrests, charges, and convictions during the preceding two-year licensure period, if not already reported. Failure to report criminal history may result in the denial of your renewal.
