Orton Gillingham Approach

Our organization employs the Orton Gillingham Approach to examine the needs of Dyslexic students and implement strategies which increase their desire to learn. In many instances, Dyslexic students are more creative than the average student. Their creativity is often ignored while their failures are highlighted. The continued lack of success causes frustration. After learning multi-sensory strategies, the level of frustrations  considerably reduced. This reduced frustration level is partially due to  precise, structured, consistent learning provided during the instruction, The multi-sensory approach  uses three pathways of learning: Visual, Auditory and Kinesthetic-Tactile.

Success Techniques

The ability to distinguish parts from wholes
The ability to go from easy to more difficult
Success techniques teach students how new information fits with old information.
Understanding how to move from simple to more complex items.
