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

Skills addressed include history of the English language, sound-symbol relationships, letter formation, spelling generalizations, dictionary use, short and long vowel sounds, digraphs, diphthongs, affixes and roots, word structure, consonant sounds, and decoding and encoding words.

Dr. Samuel Orton and Anna Gillingham were pioneers in the field of dyslexia. Their groundbreaking Orton-Gillingham approach, sometimes referred to as the OG approach, has been regarded as the most crucial and significant reading intervention designed specifically for children and adults with dyslexia.

  • 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 those letter-sounds into words
  • They then progress to advanced structural elements such as syllable types, roots, and affixes
  • Students use auditory, visual, and kinesthetic associations to remember concepts
