Our tutors utilize the Orton-Gillingham approach when teaching students to read or build their reading skills.
This approach emphasizes individualized instruction, as it recognizes that students have different learning styles and may require different strategies to learn reading, writing and spelling effectively. It also includes explicit, systematic instruction, where concepts and skills are taught in a specific order and gradually built upon.
The Orton-Gillingham approach aims to help students develop strong phonological awareness, decoding skills, and spelling abilities.
Overall, it has had a significant impact on literacy instruction, as it has helped educators better understand how to teach reading and spelling effectively. Its emphasis on breaking down skills, using multisensory techniques, and providing individualized instruction has been found to be beneficial for many students struggling with literacy.
