Possible Additional Expenses
We suggest purchasing the Gillingham Manual, by A. Gillingham & B. Stillman (8th Edition). This is an invaluable reference and resource for implementation, and is NECESSARY for anyone seeking certification (summarizing the manual, chapter-by-chapter, is a required part of the certification process).
Your course fee covers all aspects of the workshop and a set of phoneme cards.
Many teachers pursuing Classroom Educator Level accreditation by the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators opt to purchase additional materials, pursue a practicum and/or purchase a membership.
Additional possible expenses for those pursuing certification include:
- Materials fee of $475 USD (includes over 3,300 word cards and sentences) which may be purchased through the trainer.
- Practicum Fee if working towards Classroom Educator accreditation through the Academy: $350-525 USD for 5 lessons
- Application Fee/1st Year Membership for AOGPE: $150 (approx.)
*While many teachers find these packaged resources convenient, others make them on their own.
