Child and Family Development educational specialists are trained experts in Orton Gillingham, a methodology of reading instruction for people with dyslexia developed by a neurologist, an educator and psychologist.
According to their website, Institute for Multi-Sensory Education, this theory combines multi-sensory techniques along with the structure of the English language. Those items taught include phonemes and morphemes, such as prefixes, suffixes, and roots and common spelling rules. Multi-sensory education incorporates the three learning pathways, which are: auditory, kinesthetic, and visual.
Features of Orton Gillingham:
- an intensive, sequential phonic-based system teaches the basics of word formation before whole meanings.
- accommodates and utilizes the three learning modalities through which people learn
- flexibility to allow for individual learning style
