OG Frequently Asked Questions

The Orton-Gillingham Approach

Literacy is a right, not a privilege.

How Much Does It Cost?

Traditionally OG training can be costly – making it inaccessible to most educators and parents. RCF is committed to making OG training accessible to ALL educators so that ALL children are afforded the fundamental right to learn to read, write and spell. Training costs $350 per trainee (regardless of the course taken – Classroom Educator or Associate, current employment or status).

What Is Included?

The initial cost of $350 will continue to include class materials for the training, implementation support, access to all of RCF’s Monthly Teacher University Sessions, inclusion in RCF’s private Facebook page for OG trained teachers, inclusion on the RCF email list for advance notice of upcoming opportunities, events, training and more. This price also includes lunch for in person trainings.
