Orton Gillingham Phonics Reading Program

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.
