TUTORING FOR DYSLEXIA
What is Dyslexia?
One in five students, or 15-20% of the population, has a language based learning disability. Dyslexia is the most common of the language based learning disabilities.
Do you know what Walt Disney, John Lennon, Pablo Picasso, Agatha Christie, and Muhammad Ali have in common? That’s right! They are all famous and dyslexic!
Quick Facts about Dyslexia:
-Defined as extreme difficulty reading caused by a hereditary, brain based, phonologic disability
-Symptoms include poor reading, spelling, fluency as well as difficulty with short term memory and auditory discrimination
-Dyslexics struggle to quickly and accurately identify and manipulate the basic sounds of language (phonemes)
-It is not a disease, a gift, or something that will be grown out of
-Often associated with dysgraphia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia and ADHD
-Very treatable through effective reading programs, assistive technology and classroom accommodations
Although dyslexia is a lifelong issue, individuals with dyslexia respond successfully to timely and appropriate intervention or tutoring. This is why it is crucial to act promptly. Waiting with a false hope that it will disappear as the child gets older will only allow for the child to get further and further behind in his or her academics.
The Orton Gillingham Approach to Reading and Writing Instruction
We offer one-on-one tutoring using the OG approach. The latest reading research supports the Orton-Gillingham method as the “best practice” when teaching reading to students with dyslexia.
Orton-Gillingham (OG) is the research-based approach recommended by the International Dyslexia Association. OG is a multisensory structured language program. It has a sequential format moving from concrete to abstract and from simple to complex. There is sufficient repetition to achieve automation and considerable scaffolding techniques to support students at any level.
The OG approach also helps students make spelling easy for students as it focuses on why words are spelled the way they are. The English language contains 26 letters. When combined, they create 44 speech sounds and there are more than 250 ways to spell those sounds! OG condenses the spelling of these sounds into phonograms and teaches students to apply rules and generalizations that help make spelling a much easier task.
The recommended frequency is at least two hours per week of tutoring per student. To learn more about our dyslexia tutoring services, please contact us.
Pricing: 1:1 dyslexia tutoring is $80 per hour.
