The Orton-Gillingham Approach is the underlying foundation of all multisensory structured language instruction. Orton-Gillingham (OG) is biologically and linguistically sound, diagnostic and prescriptive, and structured yet flexible to the needs of each student. If you work with struggling readers, you will learn both the structure of the English language and how to teach it sequentially.
In this 30‐hour course, participants will gain an understanding of the OG Approach and how to develop an OG lesson. Participants will learn about the reading brain and dyslexia, phonology, spelling patterns, the history of the English language, and morphology.

The Stern Center means a lot to me. It is because of the work they do that I am a reader today. Before going to the Stern Center, I struggled with reading and my mind was focused on the fact that I couldn't do it- that it was impossible. Being tutored at the Stern Center not only improved my reading skills tremendously but it also changed that mindset. With the help of my incredible tutor, I was able to build confidence in my learning.
