*The Fundamentals of Orton-Gillingham: A Multi-Sensory Approach to Instruction

Are you ready to learn more about using OG in the 1st or 2nd grade classroom or during intervention? Using The Orton-Gillingham Educators' Guide, we will discover & discuss the fundamentals of this multi-sensory approach. Educators will leave understanding the purpose behind visual and blending drills, the basic rules of language, & the purpose of assessment to guide instruction for all students to succeed. This session will provide the basics for classroom instruction & intervention. Participants will leave with a book & OG cards. This is not a training for Reading Specialists, but for classroom teachers and interventionists wanting to know more!. This workshop will be held on August 1 and 2 from 9:00-12:00 each day.
