What is the Orton-Gillingham Approach?

  1. Intensive – given frequently for sufficient time
  2. Explicit – components are explained directly and modeled; no guesswork
  3. Systematic and Cumulative – concepts are ordered from simple to complex, skills built upon previously introduced concepts; built in review to aid memory and retrieval
  4. Structured – step by step

Multi-sensory – listening, speaking, reading and writing; hands on learning
