2017 Summer Orton-Gillingham Training Institute 

Summer Institute

For more than 60 years, licensed teachers (regular education, special education, ELL, reading, speech/language, and Title 1), paraprofessionals, home educators, parents, and even grandparents have taken our training courses, which are designed to help those who struggle unexpectedly learning to read, write, and spell.

The Orton-Gillingham Approach, as taught by highly qualified Reading Center instructors, employs comprehensive, scientifically based reading instruction. During the Institutes, participants will learn the approach, the structure of the English language,and apply what's been learned by planning and teaching actual lessons. The training is intense but extremely valuable and life changing. Allow time in your schedule for a training of this magnitude.

Details:

  • Enrollment is limited. Sign up today to learn this valuable approach for your professional development or for your personal enrichment.  
  • Graduate credits are available through Saint Mary's University, Winona, Minnesota. You must have a four year degree in order to apply for graduate credits.  Graduate course credit is in addition to course tuition and is the responsibility of the student.  If interested in graduate credit or extended stay accommodations, contact The Reading Center.
