Orton-Gillingham Reading Plus
Beginning on Wednesday, August 23rd, weekly homeschool classes lasting an hour and 15 minutes will begin with Orton-Gillingham tutoring and moving into language acquisition of skills. Students will be explicitly taught reading through a multi-sensory approach teaching phonemic awareness, decoding skills, encoding skills, blending, memory techniques, and handwriting. The students will then make a smooth transition into language acquisition focusing on fluency which includes prosody, rate and accuracy of reading as well as comprehension skills. Other specific areas targeted based on your child’s needs could be sequencing, categorizing, answering “wh” questions, and recalling details.
Orton-Gillingham (OG) is a language based, multi-sensory approach to reading. This will help your child if he/she is struggling with reading and spelling. This enriches your homeschool reading curriculum. When paired with language skills, your child will have a dynamic support of tools with direct teaching that benefits him/her in several areas of their life such as reading, writing, spelling, and communicating.
Confident Solutions, LLC is unique because we offer a combined approach in OG and language skills. This approach will not only focus on finding your child’s strengths but will specifically address the areas that need improvement in the acquisition of language and literacy. Spoken language provides the foundation for the development of reading and writing. Spoken and written language build on each other which creates language and literacy competency. When language acquisition is paired with Orton-Gillingham tutoring we can help prevent written language problems by fostering language acquisition and emergent literacy.
