Next intensive courses MaxScholar Orton-Gillingham Training Institute

In MaxScholar, we are committed to providing high quality Orton-Gillingham Training at an affordable cost

Professional Development (PD) of teachers is an essential part of the MaxScholar program. Teachers must learn the methods we use and how to use our materials to be able to help their students improve their reading skills. Our PD can be delivered in person or via live webinar. In addition, our workbooks and teacher manuals provide specific directions for each teacher to follow in the use of each program in different teaching environments.
We also offer MaxScholar Orton-Gillingham Certification for teachers who complete our specific training programs, as detailed below.
