The Orton Gillingham Center of Charleston (OGCC) was established in 2018 by Charleston educational leaders seeking change in the way dyslexic learners are taught to read. We are committed to elevating the Orton Gillingham approach in the lowcountry by training more professionals and ensuring completion of the accreditation process with The Academy of Orton Gillingham Practitioners and Educators. The OGCC offers intervention support by qualified practitioners to students throughout the Charleston area. We believe that if a student is not learning the way they are being taught, they must be taught the way they can learn.
