What is Orton Gillingham?

Orton Gillingham is an instructional approach intended primarily for use with individuals who have difficulty with reading, spelling, and writing associated with dyslexia. This approach is named from the contributions of Samuel T. Orton and Anna Gillingham. Encouraged by Dr. Orton, Ms. Gillingham compiled and published  instructional materials as early as the 1930s which provided the foundation for student  instruction and teacher training in what became known as the Orton-Gillingham Approach.

Most often OG is associated with one-on-one teacher-student ratio and is always focused on the individual student. It is most properly understood and practiced as an approach, not a method, program, system or technique. In the hands of a well-trained and experienced instructor, it is a powerful tool of exceptional breadth, depth, and flexibility.
