Orton-Gillingham Reading Program
The Orton-Gillingham approach to teaching reading is a language-based, multisensory, structured, sequential, cumulative, cognitive, and flexible approach that teaches the basics of word formation before associating their whole meanings. The Orton-Gillingham method utilizes the three teaching/learning styles through which people learn—visual, auditory and kinesthetic.
A learning style where ideas, concepts, data, and other information are associated with images and techniques.
A learning style where a person learns through listening.
A learning style in which learning takes place by the student actually doing an activity that reinforces the concepts being taught.
******The Orton Gillingham approach is used in the Reading Horizons reading skills program. It is also found in all of the Reading Horizons reading curriculum including reading instruction for dyslexia as well as reading intervention for struggling readers.***
