The Orton-Gillingham approach to reading instruction was developed in the early-20th century. It is language-based, multi-sensory, structured, sequential, cumulative, cognitive, and flexible. It is used to teach struggling readers and writers who benefit from a multi-sensory approach to learning reading, and writing. It allows tutors to teach students using her individual strengths, and integrates her strategies into learning how to read in an individual way.There are several main factors to this approach.
Each of these characteristics of this approach acts like a puzzle piece connecting the intricate and complex pieces that fit together in a specific manner to help each student read, write, and become an independent learner. Students who may have a language-based learning difficulties often have problems with age-appropriate reading, spelling, and/or writing. This disorder is not about how smart a person is. Most people diagnosed with learning disabilities have average to superior intelligence.
