The OG approach stresses the connection between written words and their spoken sounds. The OG principles are diagnostic, prescriptive, cumulative, multisensory and success oriented. This step-by-step progression leads to a sense of mastery and competence.
The International Dyslexia Association offers a thorough explanation of the Orton Gillingham approach.
All After3 tutors are OG certified. While we always apply the principles of OG methodology when tutoring, not all students require specific focus on reading, spelling and penmanship. Depending on the student’s needs, we may focus on writing skills, comprehension strategies and/or organizational and study skills. Your child’s tutor will determine the most beneficial individualized program to suit your child’s learning profile. Our goal is to build students’ academic confidence, which enables them to become independent learners.
Thank you for keeping it interesting for my son. His enthusiasm for this after-school work has remained consistently high (even when one might expect it to naturally wane a bit). You are really meeting my son where he is and encouraging positive feelings of success. He is clearly energized and inspired to come again and again.Parent
