Curriculum author and trainer Denise Eide provides professional development courses for schools, gives keynotes at literacy events, and speaks at educational and homeschool conferences nationwide. This video series now provides educators access to accessable, engaging Orton-Gillingham-based reading and spelling training.

The only way to reverse the literacy crisis is to make reading and spelling training easily accessible to all teachers, tutors, and parents. Yet we know that quality Orton-Gillingham based training is expensive. We decided to create a free resource where educators can learn more about phonograms, spelling rules, multi-sensory instruction, the latest reading research, and linguistic research so that everyone has access to this vital information. Armed with this knowledge we are confident that together we can then reverse the literacy crisis and provide students with a strong foundation upon which to build the rest of their education.
