The Orton-Gillingham Approach is the underlying foundation of all multisensory structure language instruction.

If you work with struggling readers, you will learn both the structure of the English language and how to teach it sequentially.
This course is specifically designed for K-5 classroom teachers and addresses the foundation skills within the Common Core State Standards. Participants will learn how to use the Orton-Gillingham Approach in the classroom setting to benefit all learners.
This course meets the requirements for the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators Classroom Educator certification.
