The Process

Pre-program meeting

We always suggest an initial briefing between our OG practitioner and parents to explain the process in detail and to gain a better understanding of the child’s needs. The program is fairly complex, and we have found that parents feel much better informed when they have the material explained in person. 

The program structure

Orton-Gillingham has three main parts; phonology (sounds), syllabication and morphology (Greek and Latin roots).  The program is very flexible and is tailored to individual needs.  Orton-Gillingham lessons are typically administered twice weekly for an hour each session.

Program review

We suggest a treatment plan based on the goals of the family and offer frequent check-ins with parents and teachers.  Our practitioner tests throughout the program to monitor movement in ability.
