Reading Center Professional Membership for Institute Alumni

$229 annual fee

Take Advantage of this Exclusive Offer for graduates of The Reading Center's full Basic and Advanced Training Institutes.

Membership is offered to those who have successfully taken The Reading Center’s Basic or Advanced Orton-Gillingham Training Institutes and who are not currently employed by The Reading Center as Academic Language Therapists.  We are offering members exclusive Reading Center resources to support you (as an Academic Language Therapist), to enable skills growth and to practice OG at high levels of proficiency.

This is our second year offering professional membership and for simplicity we decided to condense membership into one level AND add resources!
