Orton Gillingham Training for the SLP

I need the Level 1 Orton Gillingham Basic Language Course so that I may be better equipped to service students with Reading Language Delays and students diagnosed with Dyslexia/Dysgraphia.

My Students

I work in an underprivileged neighborhood where so many of our students live in foster homes, shelters and often times relocate far too often due to unforeseen circumstances. These children have difficult uprisings, many hardships, and challenges.

As a speech teacher, I work with students who have various disabilities, such as Autism Spectrum Disorders, Intellectual Disorders, Speech and Language Impairments, Dyslexia, Emotional Disturbances, and others.

Despite these challenges, our students work very hard to achieve their goals and overall academic success. I also help students become better communicators so that they are able to form relationships with peers and become community helpers/leaders.

I strive to make each and every student of mine feel encouraged, safe, and enthusiastic when they come to my therapy room. Once I have their trust, academic and social success will follow.

My Project

The Orton Gillingham approach is regarded as one of the highest quality methods for treating students with Dyslexia and Learning Disabilities. I am requesting funding to take the online course so that I may be better trained to teach all areas of reading.

My students with Dyslexia and other Learning Disabilities deserve a speech and language therapist who is highly trained to teach literacy, because everyone deserves the opportunity to learn how to read.

1 in every 5 children have Dyslexia, I find myself obligated to do all that I can. After all, school based speech and language therapists may be the only help these students receive.
