This training brought Orton-Gillingham to life for me. The presentation was lively, accessible, hands-on, and immediately useful. It has changed the way I observe and respond to my students; as a result, my teaching is increasingly targeted and effective.
— Reading Specialist
The Orton-Gillingham Associate level course has allowed me to teach students who have Dyslexia and other learning difficulties. The multisensory approach has provided measurable results in my classroom, with some students growing three grade levels in their reading—growing from a kindergarten level to a 3rd grade level in less than a year!

Laurie Cousseau changes lives. She teaches her students the tools they need to learn to read effectively and efficiently in a way that eliminates years of frustration and disappointment. Most importantly, she inspires children to believe in themselves, providing the appropriate balance of challenge and support to create confident and competent readers.
