Program: Inservice Courses

Dates: 8/21/2017 to 8/25/2017

This 5 day course meets the requirements for Orton-Gillingham Classroom Educator designation with the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators (AOGPE). It is the first step in preparing teachers to use the OG Approach in the classroom setting and allows teachers to use direct instruction to bring a multi-sensory, structured, and linguistic phonics-based approach into the mainstream classroom. The curriculum will include: dyslexia and reading disorders; the rationale of the OG Approach; handwriting; phonological awareness, phonics, syllable division patterns, and spelling; elements of multisensory instruction, diagnostic-prescriptive teaching, and lesson planning; and AOGPE membership structure and requirements. Structured Literacy employs a highly structured sound-by-sound approach for teaching word decoding and spelling that incorporates traditional phonics and Visual-Auditory-Kinesthetic-Tactile (VAKT) methodology, and is particularly effective for struggling students and students who have been identified with dyslexia or a specific learning disability. Participants acquire a procedure for teaching letters and sounds, utilizing the phonics generalizations to decode regular and irregular spelling patterns. Fee Structure: Peconic Teacher Center will cover the costs of the Instructor for Districts in the Peconic Teacher Center Consortium. For Districts outside of PTC, we will set up a cost per district depending upon number of registrants. Payment schedule to be determined.
