Bowman’s Orton-Gillingham “Plus” for Schools
Highly engaging, evidence-based content trusted by school systems for years
Students with dyslexia are not making gains in reading because their teachers:
- didn’t learn evidence-based practices in their teacher prep program
- have had professional development in the Science of Reading but haven’t been able to put it all together into lessons
- are using an Orton-based program that’s not effective for students who need more intensive remediation
Teachers often have capable students with dyslexia (identified or not) who, despite receiving intervention, do not respond, leaving both the teacher and the students frustrated. Yet a large body of research shows that with appropriate, intensive instruction, all but the most severe reading disabilities can be effectively addressed.
Why is Bowman’s Orton-Gillingham “Plus” so Effective?
Bowman’s O-G “Plus” training is different. It is trusted by school systems for its highly engaging, evidence-based content. Teachers complete the training feeling empowered and excited to implement the program. It is highly structured, but not scripted, allowing teachers to adjust the pacing and delivery to meet the needs of the learners. Teachers come away with a deep knowledge of structured literacy and of the Orton-Gillingham multisensory approach to structured literacy.
Bowman’s O-G “Plus” training prepares teachers to identify the risk factors of dyslexia and teach struggling readers grades K-12 how to read, write, and spell.
Thousands of teachers have been trained in Bowman’s O-G “Plus” and are thrilled with their students’ progress.
