How to train and accredit.

Other options for OG Canada accreditation and membership:

You have taken Orton Gillingham Practitioner training elsewhere.

Stream B Application

If you already hold Orton-Gillingham accreditation or have completed your training and practicum through another accrediting body, you may apply to OG Canada through the Stream B application pathway.

The Stream B pathway allows for an individualised review of your credentials and qualifications.

You will be asked to complete a probation period, provide evidence of your training, meet with our board members, and submit a recorded Orton-Gillingham session.

If your training meets our standards you will be placed in the academy at Supporter, Classroom Educator, Practitioner Associate-Interim, Practitioner Associate, Supervisor, Trainer-Interim level depending on your training and experience.

Application through the Stream B program is outlined in our Practitioner Application policy.

You live outside of Canada.
