Event: OG Manila 2019

OG English Course

Orton-Gillingham Trainer and Fellow Ron Yoshimoto is coming back to Manila!

M S L Centre and Reading Specialists will hold Orton Gillingham Training Courses in Manila from November 11 to 16, 2019.

The Yoshimoto Orton-Gillingham Approach Training Course is designed for classroom teachers, tutors, reading specialists, special education teachers, home-school parents, and parents of children with learning differences.

Here are some feedback from last year’s OG Training Course in Manila:

This was one of the best professional development opportunities that I have attended. I learned a ton and feel ready to begin implementing the strategies and resources. I hope that Mr. Ron can come back! – A. B., Educator

Ron was the best speaker I could have hoped for. Also, the event was very well-organized. Kudos to Reading Specialists! – R. I., Reading Clinician

The best things about the seminar are the excellence and expertise of Mr. Ron, and the preparedness and organization of the training. – V.S. , school administrator

The role play and hands-on learning experiences helped me learn and practice the Yoshimoto Orton-Gillingham approach. – V.S., parent

Ever since we enrolled our son in Reading Specialists, in just 3 months we already saw the difference. Our son used to have a hard time reading words. […] But now he loves to read short story books. Their teachers are not only equipped with skills but also have the compassion for their students.

[…] I enrolled my child at The Reading Specialists. In one month she was reading CVC words. Haltingly, but she was reading. Now, four months after our first enrollment, her reading has gotten so much better. […] I highly recommend The Reading Specialists. Teacher Nat and Teacher Reena, you rock big time!
