Interpreting Psychoeducational Testing – Orton-Gillingham Certified Coursework
The focus of the Interpreting Psychoeducational Testing class is to gain a better understanding of psychological testing and how to use that knowledge to write a student profile and guide teachers/tutors in the planning of OG lessons.

• The importance of background information
• The importance of school history
• Testing Instruments (example the WISC-V, CTOPP, and various achievement tests)
• Writing a student profile
• Understanding motor and sensory difficulties that impact learning (Occupational Therapy)
