|Date||Friday, February 2nd, 2018|
|Time||8:30am to 3:30pm|
|Location||Stern Center for Language and Learning|
183 Talcott Road
|Prerequisites||Previous Orton-Gillingham training|
This workshop is designed to review and extend your knowledge of the Orton-Gillingham Approach. Do you feel rusty on how to teach and provide effective error correction with your phonogram drill, auditory drill, spelling dictation, sentence dictation, etc? Do you have questions how to teach syllable types, syllabication, and spelling patterns? Do you have questions as you progress to more advanced levels in your scope and sequence? This workshop will be rich with video clips from 1:1, small group, and whole class OG instruction with multiple opportunities to practice and trouble -shoot.
Areas to be covered based on participant request:
Peggy Price, M.Ed., Fellow/AOGPE
Director of the Orton-Gillingham Institute at the Stern Center
Peggy Price, M.Ed., Fellow/AOGPE, is the Director of the Orton-Gillingham Institute at the Stern Center. She provides training at the Orton-Gillingham (OG) Classroom Educator, Associate, and Certified levels in addition to a broad array of OG workshops and webinars. Peggy oversees a talented team of OG Fellows across the east coast who assist her with providing in-depth mentorship to educators seeking OG certification. She regularly speaks at national conferences about the OG Approach, has been featured in podcasts, and is an editor for the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators newsletter. She has taught Orton-Gillingham to students from ages 5-44, and loves witnessing her students (and now the educators she mentors) blossom as they learn the structure of the English language. Price teaches 6-7 graduate courses a year in partnership with Castleton University.
Prior to moving to Vermont, Price taught at Trident Academy, a private school for students with language-based learning disabilities, in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina. Price also taught at the Coralwood School in Dekalb County, Georgia, where she also served on the board of the Coralwood Foundation. During graduate school, Price held a research assistantship with Project Healthy Grandparents in Atlanta to provide early intervention services for low-income children at risk for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.
Price holds a master’s degree in Special Education: Early Childhood Multiple and Severe Disabilities from Georgia State University. Her bachelor’s degree is in Psychology, with a concentration in Applied Behavior Analysis from Binghamton University. Her favorite quote is from Dr. Miriam Balmuth, “What we need instead of one well-grounded, teacher-proof method is a universe of well-grounded, method-proof teachers.” Peggy firmly believes every child has the right to become a literate member of our society, and every teacher deserves the knowledge and training to realize that promise.
|Audience||Teachers, Reading Specialists, Special Educators, Literacy Coaches and Tutors|

As a result of the Professional Learning course I attended at the Stern Center, I have a better understanding of how children learn differently and how my interactions with them impact their daily learning.
