More About This Textbook

Overview

The Orton-Gillingham approach is the most crucial and significant reading intervention designed specifically for students with dyslexia and other reading difficulties. The Gillingham Manual is the backbone of this approach.

The Orton-Gillingham approach is extremely flexible and can be used with individuals or small groups. In this multisensory phonics technique students first learn the sounds of letters, and then build these letter-sounds into words. They progress to advanced structural elements such as syllable types, roots, and affixes. Students use auditory, visual and kinesthetic associations to remember concepts.

The Gillingham manual covers reading and spelling (including a history of the English Language that helps explain some of its curious spellings and pronunciations), training for older students, acquiring familiarity with sound symbols, writing, spelling patterns, and generalizations, handwriting, and dictionary technique.
