Dyslexia is the most common learning disability, affecting up to 20% of the population. One highly effective intervention for reading and spelling is the Orton-Gillingham approach.

Sally Borden Connect offers virtual Orton-Gillingham trainings for educators, administrators, tutors, and parents. During these trainings, participants learn about dyslexia, dysgraphia, the science of reading, and fundamental elements of the Orton-Gillingham approach.

For more details about these trainings, please contact Shelbi Randenberg, Director of Sally Borden Connect.
