The Heart of Our Program
Each year, new and returning Bodine teachers receive instense Orton-Gillingham (O.G.) training. The O.G. approach is widely accepted as the most effective language-based, multisensory approach to teaching individuals with dyslexia or who have related struggles with reading, spelling, and writing.
One of the many benefits to being O.G. trained is that it gives a teacher the ability to provide an individualized approach to helping each student with his or her unique learning needs. As the Mid-South's leader in remediating children with dyslexia and related reading differences, Bodine is committed to providing a multisensory approach to instruction to students who think and learn differently.
In recent year, Bodine teachers have completed hundreds of hours of graduate level coursework in O.G. Teachers and staff at Bodine hold the distinction of Classroom Educator and Associate Level ceritfication through the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators (AOGPE). AOGPE is internationally renowned for its leadership and expertise in training teachers to support dyslexic learners.
