Extended Practicum

Why Should I Take An Extended Practicum?

  1. You need additional supervised teaching hours to apply for an Orton Gillingham certification.
  2. You need additional observations by an OG Fellow to apply for an Orton Gillingham certification.
  3. You value the additional coaching that you get when you take one of our Extended Practicum Programs.
  4. You want to build your OG teaching skills before you begin with your own students.

We supply the students for you!  Extended Practicums run concurrently with our OG Training Programs. The upcoming Extended Practicum dates are below.  You can request 3 or 4 Fellow observations during any Extended Practicum:
