Please join Tabitha Jones, English Language Acquisition Specialist, and Bri Cornell, K/1st Grade Reading Interventionist, for an evening presentation to learn more about how the Orton-Gillingham approach is used to teach literacy at Swigert. Our goal is to provide you with techniques to help your learners at home.
Kids are welcome and childcare will be provided, if needed. Please RSVP HERE and indicate how many children will need childcare.
Orton–Gillingham is a structured literacy approach that introduced the idea of breaking reading and spelling down into smaller skills involving letters and sounds, and then building on these skills over time.
It also pioneered the multisensory approach to teaching reading, which is a common component of effective literacy programs. This means that instructors use sight, hearing, touch, and movement to help students connect language with letters and words. Orton–Gillingham is widely used to teach students with dyslexia, but has been proven to be effective for all students.
