This course provides participants with a basic understanding of the principles of the Orton-Gillingham Approach. The session includes information on the characteristics of the dyslexic learner, description of the elements required in systematic, multisensory instruction, and the range of skills needed for students to master the code of the English language. This overview is particularly useful to teachers wishing to provide more balance in their reading/spelling curriculum, to parents, teachers and administrators working with students with language-based learning disabilities, and to individuals considering future training in the Orton-Gillingham Approach. The course is taught by a Fellow of the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators.
