The Orton-Gillingham approach was originally used to teach people with dyslexia how to read. However, this systematic, multi-sensory approach truly benefits all learners. If your child is struggling to read, please contact me for further information about tutoring using the Orton-Gillingham approach. Filling in the gaps and teaching necessary reading skills to your child will benefit him/her throughout their life. Having the ability to pick up a book, read it and get lost in the story is a true gift. I would love to help your child succeed! If you would like more information about tutoring or what the Orton-Gillingham approach is, you can reach me at email@example.com. Please put OG Tutoring in the subject line.

Summertime brings a perfect opportunity to get your child’s paperwork organized. We have two forms that we use when organizing files. You can download them here:
unit-1-cs and following-units-2-cs
We recommend having an organizational system that works well with your style. One typical system is to purchase a large 3-ring binder and insert the papers in order. Make sure you have a tab for school communication and print your e-mails and document your phone conversations with your child’s school. Christina has a 31 tote bag and keeps file folders organized by current IEPs, evaluations, and all pertinent documentation. It’s easy to carry to a meeting and can quickly find the folder needed on a moment’s notice.
We have found a terrific resource in organizing your child’s paperwork from the Understood website. You can find it here https://www.understood.org/en/school-learning/special-services/ieps/how-to-organize-your-childs-iep-binder?utm_source=pinterest&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=understoodorg
You can also find resources through our Pinterest page here https://www.pinterest.com/confidentsoluti/boards/
Remember, all special education paperwork will be accompanied with its own DEC5. If you would like to refresh your knowledge each type of form, you can look through our archives on past posts or send us an e-mail with your question! We love connecting with you and helping in any way we are able!
