Orton-Gillingham Based Method

Our PRIDE Reading Program incorporates the Orton-Gillingham based method.
“For children with speech deficits, language deficits, or processing deficits, the repetitive nature of the Orton-Gillingham approach is perfect for them. This method utilizes a multisensory step-by-step process for your child to learn every phoneme in the English language.”

“There is a window of opportunity for kids between kindergarten and 2nd grade where if they don’t close their reading gaps before moving onto the next grade, that child will always struggle with reading and writing. It is important you close those gaps as soon as you can.”

“The Orton-Gillingham method is a process. For many students, this is actually the only program that does work for them. Our students are really, really smart kids that just need a different approach to learning.”
