This course is a comprehensive overview of dyslexia and the Orton-Gillingham method of reading instruction, which when delivered appropriately can prevent or effectively address and limit the severity of reading and writing problems for students with dyslexia. Educators will learn the neurological basis of dyslexia, and how to recognize possible reading failure as early as preschool and kindergarten. Strategies will be primarily based on the Structured Literacy approach to reading instruction, of which Orton-Gillingham is an example. In addition to traditional Orton methodology, this course incorporates Phonological Awareness training and Reading Fluency training.
