The Orton-Gillingham (O-G) approach is biologically and linguistically sound, diagnostic and prescriptive, structured, yet flexible. It is designed for the teacher who will work to individualize instruction to meet the intensive needs of struggling language learners. All aspects of the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators (AOGPE) Associate Level Curriculum will be covered. This course is designed to prepare and provide ongoing support to teachers completing their Associate Level Practicum over the course of a school year. The combination of coursework and practicum experience will prepare students to apply at the Associate Level to the AOGPE. This two semester course will be taken in two 4 credit sections.
