This five day training will focus on a data driven, clinical, multisensory, phonetic, teacher guided Orton-Gillingham approach to teaching reading, writing and spelling in whole classroom, small group and one-to-one settings. Upon completing this course participants will have acquired the skills necessary to fully implement this data-driven solution for teaching reading to all students.
