Hi everyone! Since I started The Literacy Nest over two years ago, I’ve received many thoughtful emails asking where to go to receive OG training. I thought I’d share my list with you today and the links you can go to learn more. My training was a year long with a 100 hour supervised practicum. Keep in mind NOT all OG trainings are alike or as comprehensive. Trainings and style can vary. I always recommend choosing a program that includes a practicum. You will learn the approach and methods inside and out by the time you complete one. I promise!
1. International Dyslexia Association– This is really your go to site for all resources related to OG methods and programs. Consider a membership. They offer one for educators.
2. IMSE– This site offers workshops and week long trainings.
8. NEW! Brainspring Educator Academy: Brainspring Educator Academy helps teachers bring Orton-Gillingham based multisensory instruction to the classroom. Our nationally accredited Phonics First® (K-5) and Structures® (6-12 grade) curriculum helps transform struggling readers into skilled learners with an effective, fun, multisensory approach.
If you can’t find a training that offers a practicum in your state or country, then choose the program that fits your needs. I promise you. It is the best investment you’ll make in making a difference in a struggling reader’s life. Do you have further recommendations for training sites I may have missed? Please let me know so that I may update this post. Feel free to comment or ask questions in the comments below.
I would like to share an exciting opportunity for your own personal growth this summer. We have have teamed to create an online course that we know you’re going to love. NOT just for O.G. trained folks, Tutor Success Academy is an online, self paced course for ANYONE who is looking to start their own tutoring business or expand their existing tutoring business.
