What is dyslexia?
Dyslexia, as defined by the IDA, is "a specific learning disability that is neurobiological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge.”
What is Orton-Gillingham?
Orton-Gillingham (OG) is a multisensory approach to teaching reading. It is highly structured, explicit, systematic, and sequential. It includes phonological awareness, phonics, decoding, and spelling. OG is effective for ALL students but is essential to teaching reading to children with dyslexia and struggling readers. OG is based on the scientific research of reading.
