This course will only be available virtually.
The Associate Level coursework is designed to hone the trainee's ability to provide diagnostic and prescriptive instruction in a one-to-one remedial setting. In addition, it exposes the trainee to more sophisticated levels of language instruction than can be provided in the Classroom Educator course.
The Orton-Gillingham Academy (OGA) requires a total of 60 hours of coursework at the Associate Level. Trainees who have already taken Classwork Educator have met the first half of that requirement. This 36-hour follow-up course will exceed the Academy's requirements for Associate Level coursework.
Associate Part II coursework will include but is not limited to morphology; assessment, both formal and informal; vocabulary, comprehension, and fluency; and the writing process. An additional emphasis will be on developing lesson plans and student profiles in preparation for the trainee's application to the OGA at the Associate Level.
***This course does NOT include the practicum, which is required for Academy membership at the Associate Level. The practicum can be arranged for an additional fee.
Curriculum: OGA Associate Level guidelines
