The Center uses a structured curriculum based on the Orton-Gillingham (O-G) approach to reading instruction. This highly successful method, developed in the 1920′s, uses a sequential, multisensory phonetic approach to teaching reading, writing and spelling skills to students with dyslexia. The program incorporates auditory, visual and kinesthetic information to maximize a student’s ability to store and retrieve written words efficiently.
Students are tutored one-on-one for an hour in two weekly sessions at the Center after regular school hours. This allows for individualized reading materials and tasks to maximize each students opportunity for success.
The curriculum is tailored to each individual child as progress is made in small, readily quantifiable steps.
