Mayerson Academy


IMSLEC-Accredited Orton-Gillingham Multisensory Reading Program

Participants learn the fundamentals of the Orton-Gillingham approach to teaching reading, writing and spelling using an explicit, sequential, structured language approach with multisensory methodology providing maximum opportunities for reinforcement and engagement.

Mayerson Academy’s Multisensory Reading program is accredited for its “Teaching” and “Instructor of Teaching” levels by the International Multisensory Structured Language Education Council (IMSLEC); the program also meets the knowledge and practice standards of the International Dyslexia Association.

Mayerson Academy’s Orton-Gillingham courses address the “Big Five” of reading: phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension as recommended by the National Reading Panel Report. Instruction includes the phonology, orthography, morphology, and history, syntax and semantics of the English language. Participants learn the fundamentals of the Orton-Gillingham approach to teaching reading, writing and spelling using an explicit, sequential, structured language approach with multisensory methodology providing maximum opportunities for reinforcement and engagement.

A key component of Mayerson Academy’s program is that, under the guidance and supervision of master teachers, teachers design and implement explicit, systematic, and structured multisensory lesson plans custom-tailored to the needs of OG in Classrooms,  individual students or small groups. What makes the Academy’s Orton-Gillingham course unique is that through on-site coaching, Master Teachers assist each participant in implementing Orton-Gillingham methodology to strengthen their core reading programs (Tier I), provide remediation in small groups (Tier II), and/or provide intensive remediation to individuals (Tier III).

To achieve Certification at the Teaching Level, educators must also complete a nine-month practicum (Advanced Multisensory Reading Practicum II RDG 593).

Mayerson Academy’s Orton-Gillingham Multisensory Reading courses are now also offered ENTIRELY ONLINE. For more information about both face-to-face and online courses, go to http://www.mayersonacademy.org/orton-gillingham-multisensory-reading-program/
