Students receive instruction using several senses (sight, hearing, touch) and movement at the same time in order to increase mastery and retention of information.
Skills are taught in order from beginning skills to more complex. This ensures that students do not have any gaps in knowledge that will continue to prevent reading/spelling success.
Each lesson is designed by the tutor for the particular needs of the student based on the strengths and weaknesses noted at the previous lesson.
Students are directly taught each concept and each lesson follows a clearly defined order so that students know what to expect and nothing is overlooked.
Previously taught material is systematically reviewed to ensure mastery is retained.
The OG approach has been the gold standard for more than 80 years for teaching students who struggle with reading, writing, and spelling. It is based on the science of how students learn to read and write and what practices are most appropriate for teaching dyslexic students. More information: www.ortonacademy.org
Each student's entire person is taken into account. Relationship is formed and lessons are taught to provide earned success in order to build confidence. That confidence is nurtured as students grow in mastery.
