Our brains are wired for spoken language, but they are not naturally wired for reading.
Some people are still able to pick up reading and writing with ease, while 20% of learners really struggle with this process.
Dyslexia literally means difficulty with language and it can cause major education delays and destroy a bright student’s confidence in themselves and their ability to learn.
Are you interested in learning how to help struggling readers overcome these obstacles and reach their potential?
Savannah Dyslexia Tutoring is excited to announce that they are hosting Orton-Gillingham Training in Savannah Summer/Fall 2016 instructed by Sheila Costello M.S., Accredited Training Fellow, Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators.
Orton-Gillingham is considered the “Gold Standard” in teaching reading and spelling to dyslexic students. Orton-Gillingham is a multi-sensory, structured, prescriptive and diagnostic approach to teaching reading. It has been successfully used with thousands of dyslexic students for more than 70 years.
This 60-hour course offers participants the opportunity to learn an effective approach for teaching children with language-based learning difficulties. The training prepares teachers to instruct diagnostically and prescriptively, either individually or in a classroom setting. The course will follow guidelines set by the Orton-Gillingham Academy of Practitioners and Educators for Associate Level certification. These guidelines also require a practicum, and for those who intend to seek certification a practicum is available following the course.
June 6th- June 9th, 2016 (8AM- 4PM)
September 9th 2016 (5PM- 8PM) & September 10th 2016 (8AM- 3PM)
November 4th 2016 (5PM- 8PM) & November 5th 2016 (8AM- 3PM)
