Educator Training

At Marburn Academy, it is our mission to celebrate students who learn differently, empowering them to awaken their potential, to achieve success in school and life, and to drive positive change in our communities. Affecting positive change in our communities is something we at Marburn strive to do from a school level as well. Because of that, we feel that we should share our knowledge about teaching students who learn differently with the educational community by offering the following opportunities for educational professionals.

Orton-Gillingham Course and Practicum

Practicum participants will first spend 60 hours in seminars integrated with 60 hours of supervised tutorial practicum. During the practicum, participants learn to apply techniques within a diagnostic/prescriptive framework while accumulating the supervised tutorial hours required for Orton-Gillingham certification.
