Orton-Gillingham

The Orton-Gillingham approach is a multisensory phonics-based approach to reading, writing and spelling.
It provides:

  • Explicit instruction in the written code of the English language.
  • One-to-one tutoring that allows constant interaction between the tutor and student to maximize learning each tutoring session.
  • A sequential step by step approach that is success oriented.
  • A positive learning environment that centers on enabling students to become self-correcting and independent learners.

The Orton-Gillingham approach to therapeutic tutoring can benefit:

  • Students who are struggling with reading, writing and/or spelling and performing below their expected level in these areas.
  • Students who have not been successful with other reading programs.
  • Students who are dyslexic.
  • Students who guess at words or struggle to read unfamiliar words.

These persons can succeed when those responsible for their success:

  • Understand language; its processing; production and structure.
  • Understand the nature of a specific language difference and its ramification.
  • Understand the way dyslexics learn.
