Learning to read with Orton-Gillingham system

Recently Marie Pacini, MAT, educational specialist at the Pineville office of Child and Family Development, expanded her Orton-Gillingham training. 

Features of Orton-Gillingham:

  • an intensive, sequential phonics-based system teaches the basics of word formation before whole meanings.
  • accommodates and utilizes the three learning modalities through which people learn
    • visual
    • auditory
    • kinesthetic
  • flexiblity to allow for individual learning style

Marie plans to use this system in her tutoring and academic coaching sessions. This summer, she offers small group intensives on reading and other subjects.
