Orton-Gillingham Methodology

The Orton-Gillingham Methodology is focused upon the learning needs of the individual student. As with all students, students with language-based disabilities need to master the same basic knowledge about language and its relationship to our writing system to become competent readers and writers.

However, because of their disability, they need more academic support and direct instruction than most students to acquire the skills necessary to manipulate the elements of language.
