Greater Cincinnati Orton-Gillingham Training Programs


We are fortunate to have two Orton-Gillingham training programs available in the Greater Cincinnati Area. Each program provides opportunities to learn the Orton-Gillingham (O-G) approach to teaching reading. One program is offered through the Children’s Dyslexia Centers of Cincinnati, and the other is offered in cooperation with Mayerson Academy. The opportunity to earn graduate credit from The College of Mount St. Joseph is available for both training programs. See links in the Education Tab above for detailed descriptions of each course.  


O-G . . . What is it?

The Orton-Gillingham approach:

  • is well built.
  • begins with the small fundamental pieces of the language.
  • strengthens skills to assure a strong foundation.
  • uses this foundation to teach more complex skills.


Children will learn to read!

Dyslexics learn differently! They must be taught differently!
