I'm so proud of the training that has been accomplished to date. It's kind of goofy, but every training I complete, I picture in my head that every teacher sitting in the training will effectively teach at least one dyslexic student to read at grade level. To me, that means that student has been saved from a future of frustration and not meeting their potential.
I've been privileged to meet so many highly trained and skilled teachers. In every training, the majority of the teachers will express their own frustration in trying to help dyslexic students learn to read, and thank me for giving them another strategy to use to intensify reading instruction and learn more about the foundational elements of our English language.
The goal of the
Oregon Dyslexia Institute
(ODI) is to train as many teachers as possible to:
- Understand and recognize dyslexia,
- Learn the foundational skills in reading,
- Use a multi-sensory structured language approach to teach literacy to children with dyslexia or any struggling reader
ODI offers all levels of courses and practicums for the
Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators
(AOGPE) so there is something for everyone.
