Turning Pages training programs are based on the

Orton-Gillingham approach to reading instruction.


This research-proven approach was developed by Dr. Samual Orton and Anna Gillingham and

utilizes phonetics while incorporating visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning styles.


The training moves from simple to complex in a sequential, cumulative and systematic manner.

Trainees will receive explicit instruction on how to implement the Orton-Gillingham approach,

including the following techniques:


• Simultaneous Oral Spelling – Finger Spelling

• Tracing/Skywriting

• Penciling

• Arm-Spelling

• Blending

• And other multi-sensory techniques


Trainees receive 30 hours of hands-on instruction. This course is available for graduate credit

or continuing education credits.


Upon completion, individuals will be able to create individualized lesson plans and be able to teach:


• Six syllable patterns

• Syllable division rules

• Spelling rules

• Phonemic Awareness

• Affixes

• Non-Phonetic (Red) Words

• Homophones
