What you will receive:

The 30-hour Orton-Gillingham Classroom Educator course is aligned with the Standards of the Orton-Gillingham Academy.  It is designed to provide educators in general education settings with the knowledge to teach reading and writing skills using a structured, simultaneously multisensory, evidence-based approach at the whole class or small group level. The course addresses reading acquisition in all learners as well as the nature and needs of the dyslexic learner, the principles of the Orton-Gillingham approach, and knowledge of structure of the English language. Teachers learn to design and implement Orton-Gillingham based lessons involving phonological and phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and handwriting.  A supervised 50-hour practicum is highly recommended for teachers who have completed the course work, where they will be able to implement what they learn in their particular setting with the mentorship of an OGA Fellow.

Individuals seeking Classroom Educator certification through the Orton-Gillingham Academy may apply to the Academy after the successful completion of the course and practicum.

Sponsored by The Hamilton Institute and the Hamilton School at Wheeler with funding by Boon. Hamilton is a member of the International Dyslexia Association and the National Association of Independent Schools.
