The Orton-Gillingham approach focuses upon the learning needs of the individual student. Systematic, diagnostic, prescriptive, and evidence-based, this approach teaches the structure of language in an integrated lesson format. Remediation involves an initial Summary of Language Screening and monthly Progress Reports. 

Orton-Gillingham tutoring is available for students of any age or skill-level.
