Orton-Gillingham Literacy & Dyslexia Training

Linda McKillop is a Certified Practising Speech Pathologist | Certified Dyslexia, Reading & O-G Practitioner | Certified Master Trainer for O-G in Australia.

Robust literacy is a skill we all need.  And it is one thing we also have plenty of evidence-based certainty about how to teach. The skills of literacy can be taught to children and all learners – regardless of how complex their challenges might be.

Our fabulous Linda McKillop will be continuing to offer Yoshimoto Orton-Gillingham training to educators and parents in Tasmania. This is direct, data-driven teaching to you. It covers the key knowledge and techniques for all educators to unlock students’ literacy.

After successful training events in Launceston and Hobart we’re pleased to offer this valuable training now in other regions also.
