Orton-Gillingham Associate Level Training

What Is This Event About?

The Orton-Gillingham Associate Level Course is designed to prepare trainees to individualize instruction to meet the specific needs of each learner. The curriculum in the training adheres to the guidelines of the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators, emphasizing the principles of the approach: language-based, multisensory, structured, sequential, cumulative, cognitive, flexible, diagnostic/prescriptive, and success oriented.

This two-week comprehensive course is designed to satisfy the Associate level curriculum for the Orton-Gillingham Academy. The syllabus covers:

  • Characteristics of Dyslexia and Language Processing
  • Historical Perspective on the Orton-Gillingham Approach

  • Phonology/How to Teach Decoding
  • Syllable Types and Syllabication
  • Morphology/Anglo-Saxon, Latin and Greek Elements of our Language
  • Reading Comprehension
  • Written Expression
  • Teaching Strategies and Lesson Planning for Effective Remediation

 

The goal of the training program is to present scientific research supporting best practices in teaching reading and writing; developing an understanding of dyslexia; and maintaining professional excellence in applying the Orton-Gillingham principles to teaching. Practitioners will learn to individualize instruction to meet the specific strengths and weaknesses of their students. The lessons for the student are built and paced according to the success of the individual student.

 

Presented by Joan Gerken, Fellow/AOGPE, this seminar follows the Associate curriculum guidelines established by the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators which includes classroom instruction, selected readings, and supervised teaching. Following this coursework, those interested in pursuing the Classroom Educator or Associate credentials with the Orton-Gillingham Academy must complete 50 to 100 hours respectively of supervised teaching.
