The idea of executing on what you have learned in your IMSE Orton-Gillingham training may feel overwhelming, but it will be worth it. You will see your students catch-up, excel, and amaze both you and themselves.  Soon, as has happened to so many of us, a practical OG approach becomes a fundamental tool in your toolbox.

The first step is to assess your students.  If you haven’t done so already, now is the time.  Use the assessment results to differentiate your instruction, and employ creative, multi-sensory teaching.   Assessments will help you document growth.

I’m reaching out to remind you that the effort you put into implementing IMSE’s OG will be worth it. While it will not always be easy, you will get better and better at integrating OG into your lesson planning, and we are here to support you along the way.

I want you to remember to have fun, be creative, model, and encourage your students to be the incredible readers they were meant to be.

Please connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest to get tips and tricks from us and your peers.  Read the IMSE Journal to hear success stories from other schools and districts, and be sure to read the OG Weekly email series for refreshers and tips.


All the best in 2017/2018!

We look forward to hearing about your success.
