What type of student is this reading program for?

This Orton-Gillingham based reading program is for students, ages 7 to 13, who are dyslexic or who simply struggle to read and spell. This is also very helpful for children with communicative issues, an auditory processing disorder, as well as a auditory discrimination problems.

How does this program work?

The reading program contains fifty lessons with five review lessons. The lessons will walk you through the process of teaching your student to read and spell. This is done systematically with short workbook exercises followed by the online games and tools. The program includes four components: 1) the online flash cards, 2) the online dictations, 3) the workbook, and 4) the online games. All you need to purchase is the book, everything else is included at no extra charge.

What are the benefits of using this reading program?

This is a reading program specifically designed for dyslexia. It was created, changed, and tweaked with the help of many students. We saw what worked and what didn't and created a kid-friendly program that would be effective and enjoyable. In fact, we often hear the comment that our programs are the ones that finally worked.

The goal of this program is to get your student reading as quickly as possible. If done daily, it could be completed within three months (for most students). The ease of which this program can be implemented ensures that just about anyone can do it (note that we do feel that instructors should share the same accent as the student). Parents, older siblings, grandparents, as well as hired tutors or teachers can all easily use this program.

A typical lesson:

1) starts with a review using the online flash cards,

2) followed by reviewing the dictations (a spelling activity that you child does independently),

3) followed by the lesson & exercises from the reading program workbook,

Using this Program Remotely or in the Classroom

Watch the video below to learn about using our classroom/distance learning tools.

This reading program has two tools that can be used to present lessons remotely or in a class setting (using a Smart Board or a computer screen).

  1. The Teacher's Manual - this includes all lesson slides plus the workbook pages. This is available as a Kindle e-book that can be accessed on a Mac, PC or Android device using Amazon's Kindle app.

  2. Lesson Slides PDF - this includes only the lesson slides for the program. It does not include the workbook pages.

The lesson slides can be used to present the lessons using a Smart Board or screen sharing software for distance learning. It can also be used on a laptop or tablet for one-on-one tutoring or teaching a small group. The slides illustrate the lessons in an organized, explicit manner, encouraging student participation.

Note that each student should have their own workbook for a complete Orton-Gillingham approach. If you are using the Teacher's Manual, the workbook images are included so that you do not need a book of your own. If you are using the lesson slides PDF, then you should have your own workbook.

The workbook, lessons and online tools promote phonemic awareness and contain the multi-sensory activities that are required for the Orton-Gillingham approach. Organized in a cumulative, structured manner, with repetition built in, your students won't miss any sounds or rules and will overcome their reading difficulties.
