Orton-Gillingham Training Institute

Since 1951, licensed teachers, paraprofessionals, home educators, parents, and even grandparents have taken our training courses, which equip trainees to provide breakthrough instruction to struggling readers of all kinds.  The Orton-Gillingham approach, as taught by highly qualified Reading Center instructors, employs comprehensive, proven reading instruction with an intensive practicum to prepare the learner for immediate use with students. During Institute, participants will learn the approach, the structure of the English language, and apply what's been learned by planning and teaching actual lessons.
