Overview of the Orton-Gillingham Approach

The Orton-Gillingham Approach is a scientific, evidence-based, appropriate, structured, multi-sensory, spiraling, scaffolding and prescriptive way to teach literacy to students when reading, writing, and spelling are challenging. It was designed to remediate students with Dyslexia but can be used to teach any child to effectively read, write, and spell. It was developed in the 1930's by Anna Gillingham and Samuel Orton. This approach to reading has been proven effective for all readers whether typical or atypical. Using this approach, students build confidence and gain the tools and strategies needed to become successful readers.

Wilson Reading System

The Wilson Reading System is a structured literacy program based on phonological-coding research and Orton Gillingham principles. The Wilson Reading System directly and systematically teaches the structure of the English language. Through the program, students learn fluent decoding and encoding skills to the level of mastery. The Wilson Reading System is designed for students from second grade up to adulthood and can be conducted one-on-one or in a group setting. Students who have deficiencies in phonological awareness and/or orthographic processing benefit from this type of program.

“She’s the best!!!”

Jamie has been working with my son for the past few months. I’ve never seen him so confident before about his math and reading skills. She’s the best!!!

“We did it! We sure did it!!!!!”

Throughout the entire experience which has been 1 year with my daughter and obtaining an IEP for her, Lisa has directed me in the right direction. She has kept my nerves at a minimum with her words of love and compassion while keeping my spirits up and keeping a winning spirit. Lisa is outstanding with her knowledge of the laws, regulations and special niches within the system that can help us as parents rather than being a hindrance. Thank you, Lisa, for all you have done for me and the family! I so appreciate your knowledge, your compassion and your empathy for my daughter and your fight for knowing what is right in the world of Special Education. We did it! We sure did it!!!!!

“…but against all odds, he did it !!”

When Jamie started to tutor my son, he was in Pre-K reading level. In just 7 months, my son jumped to 2nd grade reading level, surprising his school teachers and others who believed this kind of progress was not possible … but against all odds, he did it !! I don’t have words to express how grateful I am to Jamie, who not only provided my son the technics to succeed, but always believed he could ♡♡ I look forward to keep working with Jamie, and watch the amazing and unstoppable progress my son will be making 🙂 Every kid learns differently that’s why multisensory education works !! Thanks Jamie !! We love you !! 🙂

Autism and Reading Comprehension

What is the connection between autism and reading comprehension? Children with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in some cases display advanced reading skills.  Although children with ASD have deficiencies within expressive and receptive language, they may accurately identify printed word as young as 18 months old without explicit instruction.  This ability is extraordinary as these children can read before mastering spoken language or being able to speak at all. In 1967, the term for reading […]
