Sessions with a Reading Specialist in Training

At Orton Gillingham Reading Specialists, we do two things:

1.  Teach struggling readers using the Orton Gillingham approach.

2.  Teach educators to become Orton Gillingham Reading Specialists.

During the time that the teachers are taking their classes with us, they need students to practice the skills they've learned!

So, if you sign up to work with a Reading Specialist in Training (ReSiT), you are helping those teachers get their teaching hours, and YOU get a great deal on tuition!
