There are many things to consider when you are looking for an Orton-Gillingham program. Find out how to choose a quality, easy-to-use program in Part 5 of the series “Orton-Gillingham: A Multisensory Structured Language Approach”.
Orton-Gillingham programs are based on six main principles of instruction. The first three (Phonics-based, Structured/Systematic, and Direct-Instruction) are recommendations of the National Reading Panel. The next three take it above and beyond what the National Reading Panel recommends (Multisensory, Sequential, and Cumulative). Find out more about each principle in Part 2 of the series “Orton-Gillingham: A Multisensory Structured Language Approach.”

What is Orton-Gillingham?
Orton-Gillingham is NOT a trademarked name. ANYONE can use the name Orton-Gillingham. This is why it’s important to choose a quality Orton-Gillingham, or Multisensory Structured-Language, program that has been thoroughly reviewed and accredited by one of the three main accreditation councils. The three accredidation councils are the: International Dyslexia Association, International Multisensory Structured Language Education Council (IMSLEC), Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators.
