Reading Reform Foundation-trained teachers help New York City and Metropolitan-area students become better readers, writers and spellers.
For over 30 years Reading Reform Foundation of New York has been training New York City public-school teachers in proven, phonic-based methods, improving their students’ ability to read, write and spell. The goal: to leave teachers able to use their new knowledge for the rest of their teaching careers.
Our programs provide teacher-training directly in the schools as well as graduate-level courses for teachers, administrators and parents in the teaching of an Orton-Gillingham or other Orton-based, phonics approaches to teaching reading, writing, spelling and comprehension.
