Readers, Writers, Meaning Makers: Level One – Summer 2020
BUILDING CONFIDENCE IN READING THROUGH THE ORTON-GILLINGHAM METHOD

This group will be led by one Orton-Gillingham trained speech-language therapist.

Children are expected to attend every session (barring illness), as the sessions build on each other and group dynamics are an important component. These services are billed as Occupational and/or Speech Therapy services and many parents receive partial reimbursement from their insurance companies.
If your child is not attending therapy sessions at Emerge, we will be in touch with you to set up a brief free screening to determine if this program is a good match for your child.
