This 5-day Orton-Gillingham training course has been expanded and adapted by Ron Yoshimoto. It is a structured language approach which empowers educators and speech pathologists to understand and implement evidence based reading and early writing instruction for both children and adults. This diagnostic, explicit, systematic and multisensory instruction, prepares educators and speech pathologists to both understand underlying processes vital for reading and spelling development, and successfully provide reading and spelling instruction to all students, including those who have dyslexia or a developmental language disorder.
This course is a practical training which focuses on developing participants’ understanding of the reading and spelling challenges students face, and providing intervention in the areas of phonological awareness, phonics, orthographic mapping, reading fluency, vocabulary, reading comprehension, spelling and the early stages of written expression. This approach is flexible allowing educators and speech pathologists to adapt it to a range of student needs and contexts.
