“The mentoring support I received helped to sustain the fidelity and implementation of the O-G approach.”
“Since I began implementing the Orton-Gillingham approach to teaching literacy in my whole class, small group and one on one instruction I have seen tremendous gains in my students’ ability to read and spell unfamiliar and/or multisyllabic words.”
“Before Orton-Gillingham I’m not sure I could answer every question that my students asked, specifically regarding spelling and decoding. Orton-Gillingham opened my eyes to the origins of our language, how and why syllables and words fit together, which patterns worked most of the time and why, which syllable types were most common and why. This knowledge has absolutely changed my teaching in a positive way.”

Before going to the Stern Center, I struggled with reading and my mind was focused on the fact that I couldn't do it. The Stern Center not only helped me improve my reading skills, but I was able to build confidence in my learning.
