OG Training Information
RCF facilitates training of teachers in Orton-Gillingham, which is considered the gold standard in literacy instruction for ALL students and vital for students with dyslexia. The training we provide is the best-of-the-best through a Fellow in the Orton-Gillingham Academy (formerly known as the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators/AOGPE).

What Is OG?
OG is described as a language-based, multisensory, structured, sequential, cumulative, cognitive and flexible approach to helping students become confident readers, writers and life-long learners. The critical elements that make OG effective for ALL students include: personalized, multisensory, diagnostic/prescriptive, direct, systematic, linguistic, systematic/structured, sequential/incremental/cumulative, continuous feedback/positive reinforcement, cognitive and emotionally sound.
How Much Does it Cost?
Traditionally OG training can be costly – making it inaccessible to most educators and parents. RCF is committed to making OG training accessible to all educators so that ALL children have a chance to learn to read, write and spell. RCF does this by offering OG training for FREE to public school educators who can provide proof of current employment and support from their administration that they will be able to implement what they learn in their classroom. RCF provides OG training to all other attendees for a private pay cost of $200 per person.
