The Orton-Gillingham (OG) approach is language based, multi-sensory, structured, sequential, cumulative, cognitive, flexible and emotionally sound. Infinitely adaptable, it is a philosophy rather than a system.

M S L Centre, in partnership with Reading Specialists, is bringing the Orton-Gillingham English Course to Manila. The course will be conducted by Ronald Yoshimoto, M.Ed, M.S.W., Fellow of the Academy of Orton-Gillingham (OG) Practitioners and Educators (AOGPE).

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.

This course is accredited by the International Dyslexia Association (IDA).


The role play and hands-on learning experiences helped me learn and practice the Yoshimoto Orton-Gillingham approach.

The best things about the seminar are the excellence and expertise of Mr. Ron, and the preparedness and organization of the training.

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

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!
