The Children’s Learning Center Program offers free training for individuals who are interested in receiving initial certification as tutors in the Orton-Gillingham approach. Requirements for certification include 45 hours of classroom instruction and 100 hours of practicum work under supervision of qualified professionals tutoring two children twice a week at a Children’s Dyslexia Center.

The Children’s Dyslexia Center also provides training for advanced certification. Our affiliation with institutions of higher education enables professionals who train as tutors at our Centers to earn continuing education credits and students to earn full course credits.
