Why Yoshimoto OG?


The Yoshimoto OG approach works!

Teachers are able to fully implement this program upon completion of the training. And while expertise comes with practice and continued training, data has proven that Ron Yoshimoto has developed a hugely successful program that works for students and teachers. Yoshimoto OG is appropriate for classrooms, small groups and teaching individuals; primary, elementary, intermediate, secondary, college, and adults. These classes are designed specifically for classroom teachers, tutors, reading specialists, special education teachers and home-school parents. All our Orton Gillingham (OGI) classes are limited in size to provide personal attention and direct support.


Extensive Materials

OGI trainings include all materials required for full implementation which are included in the cost of the course. Further, there will be extensive support materials provided including multiple CDs which include approxiamtely 6,000 worksheets covering the concepts of syllabication, sounds, rules and generalizations.


Yoshimoto OG teaching sessions are action oriented with auditory, visual, and kinesthetic elements reinforcing each other; spelling is simultaneously taught with reading.


Structured, Sequential, Cumulative
Teaching proceeds from phonemic awareness, phonics, syllable types, syllable division rules, spelling, vocabulary, sentence structure, composition, and reading comprehension.


Data Driven, Flexible, Cognitive
Yoshimoto OG is data driven, diagnostic-prescriptive teaching at it’s best. The teacher designs and implements lessons based on the data gathered from the individual student and/or the classroom group. The instruction is targeted at the needs of the students and paced to insure the level of mastery that supports ongoing success for all students.  Further, the method includes targeted interventions for students who require more repetitions or intensity. The teacher always seeks to understand how an individual learns and devises appropriate teaching strategies using students’ strengths, while accommodating their weaknesses.
