Fall 2014 Subscriber Workshop



This workshop, designed for parents and professionals and those interested in learning more about dyslexia, presents an overview of the Orton-Gillingham Approach.

Participants benefit from this workshop by developing a better understanding of a child’s learning differences and why he/she benefits from this phonetic, multi-sensory approach.

You will be introduced to the following:

  • what the Academy is
  • where you might fit in
  • what the Orton-Gillingham Approach is and its history
  • for whom the Orton-Gillingham Approach is appropriate and necessary
  • the history and structure of the English language
  • recognition of traits and symptoms that may point to dyslexia
  • how dyslexia differs from other learning differences
  • alphabetic principles
  • introduction to phonology
  • the rationale and principles of Orton-Gillingham

In order to become eligible for Subscriber Level Membership, all 7.5 hours of the workshop must be attended.
