All teachers should have access to training in best educational practices and current research.
Our faculty is trained in the best research and evidence-based approaches to help our LD/ADHD students achieve success, but the reality is that not every student who needs and TSS education can attend. To extend our reach and help as many students as possible, we provide ongoing teacher training and professional development support.
The roots of our success are grounded in the Orton-Gillingham Approach. Each summer, we offer training in Orton-Gillingham, taught by AOGPE Fellow Theresa Collins and other Fellows and FITs certified by AOGPE. Ms. Collins works collaboratively with other members of the academy to provide training in the best evidence-based approach to remediate student who struggle with language-based learning differences, like dyslexia.
During the school year, we typically offer relevant practicum experiences and ongoing training to support further teacher development at the Classroom Educator and Associate Levels.

TSS is proud to announce a partnership with Sacred Heart University (SHU) to bring you their first Graduate-Level course in Structured Literacy, which also meets the guidelines of the Classroom Educator coursework as defined by the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators (AOGPE).
Students have two options for enrollment - they may enroll as a non-credit seeking student for $1550, or they may enroll as a credit-seeking student to earn 3 graduate credits from SHU for $2115.
