Summer 2016 Associate teacher training

TEACHER TRAINING – Summer 2016

BUILDING a strong foundation - bricks

The summer 2016 Associate level training session concluded with a new group of trainees ready to begin their practicums!
It was a wonderful mix of new teachers, parents and some seasoned professionals who had some prior training in the basic levels of Orton-Gillingham or an Orton-Gillingham based program and were looking to deepen their understanding of the layers of English. 

It was an intensive session and trainees will have much work to do to practice and consolidate their skills and knowledge, but they are certainly on their way to building a solid foundation of understanding of the multiple layers of the English language!  Well done!
