Building capacity and understanding
Dyslexia Orton-Gillingham Institute of Australia
Empowering educators, speech pathologists and parents to implement evidence-based reading and early writing instruction for children and adults. DOGI's vision is for every parent and educator to have the skills and knowledge to teach students with dyslexia by providing training in the Yoshimoto Orton-Gillingham approach.
The Orton-Gillingham Approach is a direct, explicit, multisensory, structured, sequential, diagnostic, and prescriptive way to teach literacy when reading, writing, and spelling does not come easily to individuals, such as those with dyslexia. It is most properly understood and practiced as an approach, not a method, program, or system. In the hands of a well-trained and experienced instructor, it is a powerful tool of exceptional breadth, depth, and flexibility.

Latrobe Unviersity - SOLAR Lab
The SOLAR Lab was established in the School of Education at La Trobe University in 2020 to promote the scientific study of the role of oral language skills in the emergence and consolidation of reading skills across the school years (pre-school to secondary). They use the term “reading” to specifically identify core skills in text decoding and language comprehension that also promote success in writing and spelling.
The SOLAR Lab offers a series of online short courses on the science of language and reading, designed for classroom teachers, literacy leaders, principals, allied health clinicians, and parents who are interested to know more about the linguistic foundations of reading and evidence-informed teaching practices.
