Outline of Training Expectations:
A minimum of a bachelor's degree (in any area of study) is required to enroll in a course.
There are two options for meeting course requirements:
60 hours of coursework
100 hours of practicum over 8 consecutive months (minimum)
Practicum experience must be in a 1:1 40-60 min., 2x a week on non-consecutive days
70 hours (60 + 10 how to teach groups or classrooms)
50 hours of 1:1 practicum experience and 50 hours small group/classroom experience
Practicum experience must be over 8 consecutive months (minimum) 40-60 min., 2x a week on non-consecutive days
One of the primary ways the Academy pursues its mission is by a Certification Program of individuals who apply for Academy membership. An applicant submits specified credentials and documentation that are reviewed against the criteria and standards set by the Academy for four different levels of membership.
The Academy certifies Individual Members at one of four levels: Orton-Gillingham Classroom Educator (OGCE), Associate, Certified, and Fellow. These four levels represent a continuum of increasing training, experience and professional competency. In addition, there is a Subscriber membership for persons who have taken a basic introduction to the Orton-Gillingham Approach but who have yet to undertake the training and practice required to become a certified member of the Academy.
