"This training has given me the teaching tools that I have been searching for. Now, I know I can make a difference for struggling readers." ~ 2010 Trainee

Orton-Gillingham Basic Tutor Training Course, 2013
This Orton-Gillingham Tutor Training course offers 60 hours of seminars integrated with 60 hours of supervised tutorial practicum. The seminar teaches the structure of the English language, examines the process of reading acquisition, and explains how to overcome the barriers to reading development caused by learning differences such as dyslexia. In the practicum, participants learn to apply techniques within a diagnostic/prescriptive framework while accumulating the supervised tutorial hours required for Orton-Gillingham certification.
Orton-Gillingham has been shown to be one of the two most powerful and effective approaches for addressing the reading, writing, and spelling difficulties found in 20% of bright children. It involves the use of direct instruction, multisensory techniques, sequential presentation of skills, and recursive practice, all of which are necessary for children who learn differently to maximize their learning potential.
