Orton-Gillingham

Specialized training for teachers to help them transform struggling learners into confident, successful readers.

Designed for K–12 classroom teachers, K–12 intervention  specialists, and tutors of those with dyslexia or reading difficulties. A hands-on program by master teachers.

Coaching from master teachers

Our Orton-Gillingham Multisensory Reading Program courses are designed and facilitated by master teachers to help participants learn to design and implement explicit, systematic and structured multisensory lesson plans that address the development of foundational skills necessary for students to become proficient readers.

Addresses the five components of reading

The Orton-Gillingham Multisensory Reading Program addresses the five essential components of reading—phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension—as recommended by the National Reading Panel Report (2000).

In both face-to-face and online formats

We offer the Orton-Gillingham Multisensory Reading Program in both face-to-face and online formats to enable teachers across the country to have full access to this crucial programming. Master teachers provide on-the-spot feedback, correction and suggestions as they watch teachers teach. The goal is for each participant to implement Orton-Gillingham methodology with fidelity to strengthen core reading instruction.

Our programs are accredited by the International Dyslexia Association (IDA) and/or the International Multisensory Structured Language Education Council (IMSLEC).

Thriving expands performance and well-being, simultaneously. It starts with the individual and impacts the world.
