Coming to the Bay Area July 22-26, 2013
It's not too soon to mark your calendars for the Orton-Gillingham training NCBIDA will host in the Bay Area next summer. Ron Yoshimoto, a master Orton-Gillingham trainer, will provide a five-day, 40-hour training on July 22-26, 2013. We'll announce further details, including location and cost, as soon as they become available. Space for this training will be limited to 25 people.
Ron Yoshimoto has worked with thousands of individuals in Hawaii, the continental US, Canada, and Singapore. Ron's engaging style, hands-on approach, and ability to engage all learners have made him a favorite of the teachers he works with. He has had more than 25 years experience in training teachers/parents and working with individuals with dyslexia. Ron is the former vice-president of the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators and co-president of the Hawaii Branch of the International Dyslexia Association (IDA). He is currently the Statewide Special Education Literacy Resource Teacher Trainer for Hawaii and is director of the MSL Centre in Singapore.
The training will focus on a clinical multisensory phonetic approach to teaching reading, writing, and spelling in one-on-one settings as well as small group and whole classroom formats. The course covers the three levels of decoding and spelling: sound, syllable, and morphological. Supporting materials include a CD with approximately 6,000 worksheets dealing with syllabication, sounds, rules and generalizations, handwriting, and morphology.
The Orton-Gillingham Approach is appropriate for teaching individuals, small groups, and classrooms at levels ranging from primary, elementary, intermediate, secondary, college, and adult education. It is designed for reading specialists, special education teachers, kindergarten, primary, elementary and middle school, classroom teachers, tutors, and homeschool parents.
