Orton-Gillingham is a multi-sensory approach to reading that has has proven success. Orton–Gillingham focuses on teaching kids to read at the word level. While it can help develop reading comprehension, that’s not the primary goal.


This approach uses multiple pathways to help kids learn. For example, students might learn the letter by seeing it, saying its name, and sounding it out while writing it with their fingers in shaving cream.


Orton–Gillingham also puts a strong emphasis on understanding the hows and whys behind reading. Students might explore why the letter s sounds one way in the word plays and another way in the word snake. Once they know consistent rules and patterns, they’ll be better able to decode words on their own.
