Dyslexic students need a different approach to learning language from that employed in most classrooms. They need to be taught, slowly and thoroughly, the basic elements of their language – the sounds and the letters which represent them – and how to put these together and take them apart. They have to have lots of practice in having their writing hands, eyes, ears and voices working together for the conscious organization and retention of their learning.

Past President The Orton Dyslexia Association
Using the Multi-Sensory Reading Remedy© Program most students work at their own pace to complete the full program in 2 or 3 one-hour sessions per week over a period of up to two years.
Curriculum Support Tutoring
- Multisensory teaching is simultaneously visual, auditory and kinesthetic-tactile to enhance memory and learning.
- Links are consistently made between the visual (what we see), auditory (what we hear) and kinesthetic-tactile (what we feel) pathways in learning to read and spell.
- The “Orton-Gillingham” approach refers to the structured, sequential multi-sensory techniques established by Dr. Samuel Orton and Ms. Anna Gillingham and their colleagues.
- Orton–Gillingham approach combines multisensory techniques with teaching the structures of written English, sounds (phonemes), meaning units (prefixes, suffixes, roots) and common spelling rules.

I have some good news I'd like to share with you. I tested your son today for reading and he is sitting at a level 18 (the average for grade 2 is 20 at this time of year).....wow!! He is almost at grade level...how exciting! He was so proud of himself today, it was amazing to see. For the rest of the day, he listened better and was more attentive to his tasks. It's amazing how confidence can be a motivation. Have a great day and I will continue to keep you posted. Thanks,
