Course topics will include the characteristics and needs of students with dyslexia, the critical structures of English that must be addressed by instruction, and the design, implementation and evaluation of effective individual lesson plans. Presentations will be through lectures, discussions, demonstrations, videos, and "hands-on" exercises with multi-sensory techniques and materials. This 60-hour introductory course will provide participants with an introduction to the basics of the Orton-Gillingham approach. Completion of this course can also prepare participants for the associate level of Orton-Gillingham Academy certification. Course dates will be 6/10-21/19 (10 days). A total of 60 contact hours will be awarded upon completion. Course materials are included in the cost of the training. Optional 4-semester hours of Ashland Credit available.
