Description

Presented by David Katz, Fellow AOGPE

Learn what works from an experienced, dedicated veteran in the field with over 30 years experience.

Orton-Gillingham is not a program, it is an approach to teaching the structure of the English language, that is multisensory, structured, sequential, cumulative, cognitive, and flexible.

Upon completeing the full 60 hour plus practicum course participants will have acquired the skills neccessary to implement the Orton-Gillingham methodology to teach reading, writing, spelling and comprehension to not only students with dyslexia but to all students.

In order for the trainee to apply to the Academy of Orton-Gillingham at the Associate Level, he or she must complete:

  • 60 hours of coursework taught by a Fellow of the Academy.
  • 100 hours of Supervised Practicum, teaching 1:1, under the direction of a Fellow of the Academy, over a period of at least eight months.
  • An application to the Academy containing evidence of completion.


PART 1: The first 30 hours of the course will cover the following:

  • Overview of dyslexia & learning disabilities
  • Neurological underpinnings of language difficulties
  • Introduction to the Orton-Gillingham Approach
    • Introduction to phonology
      • Sound/symbol association
    • Orton-Gillingham structure
      • The syllable
      • The six syllable types
      • Rules of Syllabication
      • Spelling Rules
  • The Orton-Gillingham Lesson Plan
    • Scope & sequence
    • Spelling
    • Dictation
  • The Student Profile
    • Medical, Educational & Academic
  • Grammar
  • Morphology
  • Comprehension
  • Written Expression

PART 2: The second 30 hours is introduced before or during the practicum because it will provide the participant with a more indepth understanding of the Orton-Gillingham Approach and lesson planning. This part of the course will introduce the trainee to the creation and writing of the student notebook, the lesson plan and practice materials. In addition, the second thirty hours will look at the role of the assessment in the planning of instruction. This is done because the child being remediated during the practicum by an Associate Trainee must receive such instruction under the guidance of an Academy Fellow
