Learning Outcomes for Course

The four day Yoshimoto O.G. training will focus on a data-driven, clinical, multisensory, phonetic, teacher guided Orton-Gillingham approach to teaching reading, writing and spelling in a whole classroom, small group and one-to-one settings. Upon completing this course participants will have acquired the skills necessary to fully implement this data-driven solution for teaching reading to all students. 

The course will cover the three levels of decoding and spelling: sound, syllable, and morphological. With the latter, introductory morphology, the emphasis will be on increasing the vocabulary for all children – general and special education students. Further, the system supports the outcomes within the Common Core.

  3. Participants will understand the learning needs of dyslexic students or of those with a reading disability
