Students who struggle learning to read, write, or spell, particularly students with specific learning disabilities (SLD)/Dyslexia, require structured literacy instruction to close their achievement gaps. This 30-hour introduction to the Orton-Gillingham (O-G) Approach, presented by a certified fellow of the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators (AOGPE) from the Learning House in Guilford, CT, will introduce the underpinnings of structured literacy and the instructional practices of the O-G approach. Educators will receive training in the components of language that support reading acquisition and a scope and sequence of instructional approaches appropriate for struggling learners.
Participants completing this course of study will be able to explain the research and rationale underlying the O-G approach; summarize the components of language related to reading acquisition; and format O-G lesson plans. The registration fee includes the Orton-Gillingham Manual.
Please Note: Independent implementation of O-G instruction requires additional training and supervision.
