Training Courses

Introduction

Few colleges and universities provide instruction in the Orton-Gillingham Approach. Training is most readily found elsewhere. However, the quality and adequacy of training represented as "Orton-Gillingham" may vary significantly. Indeed, one of the reasons the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators came into being was to provide an objective, professional assessment, by an independent third party, of the quality and adequacy of programs that profess to provide Orton-Gillingham training. The Academy is not in a position to judge the qualifications of non-Academy members, but it can speak with authority regarding its membership.

 

Persons accepted into the Academy have met standards set by the Academy under the authority granted to it by action of the Board of Regents of The University of the State of New York, for and on behalf of the State Education Department. As there are different levels of membership, the requirements to be met differ. The Academy has set its highest standards for those who would train others to be Orton-Gillingham teachers.

 

 

Overview

Training by Fellows of the Academy

Of its members, only Fellows of the Academy have achieved the levels of education, training, and experience deemed necessary to independently train others in the Orton-Gillingham Approach. Each program section presents current information provided the Academy by Fellows about Orton-Gillingham training opportunities in which they are involved.

 

Academy Fellows typically train in one of two areas:

(1) some instruct in Academy Accredited Training Programs, and

(2) others train as individuals or with organizations that are not accredited.

All Fellows who train are expected to provide instruction consistent with the high standards promulgated by the Academy. Orton-Gillingham instruction involving Academy Fellows may lead to complete fulfillment of the requirements for admission to Academy membership at the Subscriber, Classroom Educator, Associate, Certified, or Fellow levels. 

 

Subscriber, Classroom Educator, Associate, Certified and Fellow Level Training Courses are all taught by Fellows. Some of them are complete courses including the required practicum based on Academy standards. Others may not fulfill the Academy requirements. If you are interested in Orton-Gillingham training listed in the following sections, you should contact the designated Academy Fellow directly for details. 

AOGPE Training Options

Of its members, only Fellows of the Academy have achieved the levels of education, training, and experience deemed necessary to independently train others in the Orton-Gillingham Approach. 

 

There are two options that lead to Academy certification and membership:

(1) Working with individual Fellow (s)

(2) Enrolling in training within an Academy Accredited Training Program

All Fellows who train are expected to provide instruction consistent with the high standards promulgated by the Academy. Suscriber, Classroom Educator, Associate, Certified and Fellow Level Training Courses are all taught by Fellows. Some of them are complete courses including the required practicum based on Academy standards. Others may not fulfill the Academy requirements.

 

If you are interested in Orton-Gillingham training, you should contact the designated Academy Fellow directly for details. If you think you may be interested in membership in the Academy, discuss this with the Fellow, and ask how the training will qualify you for Academy membership.
