OG1: Foundations of OG/MSL

Foundations of Multisensory Structured Language Education is an introductory course to Orton-Gillingham education and training. This 30 hour course has been designed to prepare educators for either clinical training in the Orton-Gillingham approach (OGP) or Orton-Gillingham training for classroom teachers (OGCE). Subsequent course work will be offered in Australia in 2017/2018. Foundations of OG/MSL includes assignments and exam work and will be presented by Corey Zylstra, M.Ed., MT/CATT, HF/AOGPE, CDT/IDA, and international expert in MSL instruction from Vancouver, Canada.

Course content: The dyslexic learner, introduction to the Orton-Gillingham approach, screening and teaching of phonological awareness, study of phonology, decoding (from sound-symbol to blending sounds to text reading), monitoring reading fluency quickly and easily, orthography-lower level spelling rules and upper level spelling rules, and Response to Intervention (RTI) in the classroom. This course is suitable for educators who wish to learn more about the OG/MSL approach to supporting learners who struggle with language, including classroom teachers, learning resource teachers, SLPs, psychologists, school administration, and EAs. This class serves as prerequisite coursework for OG Practitioner training or OG Classroom Educator training and as general information for those interested in understanding reading development, dyslexia and the sound system of the English language.

Completing Foundations of MSL/OG will contribute 20 hours of NESA Registered PD addressing 1.5.2 , 4.1.2 and 6.2.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
