formerly a Mayerson Academy Program

Designed for K–12 classroom teachers, K–12 intervention  specialists, and tutors of those with dyslexia or reading difficulties. A hands-on program by master teachers.


COACHING FROM MASTER TEACHERS

Orton-Gillingham Multisensory Reading Program courses are designed and facilitated by master teachers to help participants learn to design and implement explicit, systematic, and structured multi-sensory lesson plans that address the development of foundational skills necessary for students to become proficient readers.

ADDRESSES THE FIVE COMPONENTS OF READING

The Orton-Gillingham Multisensory Reading Program addresses the five essential components of reading: phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension – as recommended by the National Reading Panel Report (2000).

IN BOTH HYBRID AND ONLINE FORMATS

We offer the Orton-Gillingham Multisensory Reading Program in both face-to-face and online formats to enable teachers across the country to have full access to this crucial programming. Master teachers provide on-the-spot feedback, correction and suggestions as they watch teachers teach. The goal is for each participant to implement Orton-Gillingham methodology with fidelity to strengthen core reading instruction.

Programs are accredited by the International Dyslexia Association (IDA) and/or the International Multisensory Structured Language Education Council (IMSLEC).


I learned the importance and significance of using a multi-sensory structured approach when teaching reading, writing, and spelling. I like how my learning modeled my students.

Anonymous, Orton-Gillingham participant.

I very much enjoyed and am honored to be learning the Orton-Gillingham approach. My coach was so helpful, supportive, and gave me great advice. I also look forward to Practicum II.

Theresa, Orton-Gillingham participant.

I have learned so much about reading, its theory, and how to help struggling readers read, spell, and write. The resources plus knowledge I learned from this class are amazing.
