Specializing in:

Orton-Gillingham Method of Language Instruction
The Orton-Gillingham method is language-based, multisensory, structured, sequential, cumulative, and flexible. Each lesson is tailored to the individual student's needs. Teaching begins with recognizing the differing needs of learners. Lessons use all learning pathways: auditory, visual and kinesthetic. The instructor engages in multisensory teaching in order to teach content in the most understandable way to the student. Content includes phonology and phonological awareness, syllables, morphology, syntax, and semantics.
