Director of the Orton-Gillingham Institute at the Stern Center
Peggy Price, M.Ed., a Fellow of the prestigious Orton-Gillingham Academy, is a literacy and special education expert who leads the Stern Center’s teacher training in the Orton-Gillingham approach to teaching reading. She provides training at the Orton-Gillingham (OG) Classroom Educator, Associate, and Certified levels.
Price oversees a talented team of OG Fellows who assist her with district-wide consulting and providing in-depth mentorship to educators seeking OG certification. She regularly speaks at national conferences about evidence-based literacy instruction, dyslexia, neuromyths, and morphology. Price is the co-author of Orton-Gillingham for the K–2 Classroom: Weekly Guide and Universal Assessment, Second Edition. She has taught Orton-Gillingham to students from ages 5–44 and loves witnessing her students (and now the educators she mentors) blossom as they learn the structure of the English language. Price holds a master’s degree in Special Education: Early Childhood Multiple and Severe Disabilities from Georgia State University. Her bachelor’s degree is in Psychology, with a concentration in Applied Behavior Analysis from Binghamton University.
Price firmly believes every child has the right to read, and every teacher deserves the knowledge and training to realize that promise.
