Some people especially children face the difficulties of speaking and reading properly. They are not able to understand things easily. This problem occurs at early age and is very painful for a child. They find it hard to read, write and speak. Because of this problem they think they do not fit in the society and they cut them off from other people. This problem in one term is called dyslexia and one can overcome from this difficulty with the help of orton-gillingham method.
This method is highly recommended and is used by lots of people who suffer from dyslexia. Samuel Torry Orton a neuropsychiatrist, pathologist and Anna Gillingham a psychologist invented this method which has helped many people. The orton-gillingham method uses the technique of studying and teaching language according to the particular need of a person.
The teaching session is one on one so that the teacher can focus only on one person and the person doesn’t get distracted by other students. The students are taught the history of the language in which they face difficulty. The teachers very patiently and understandingly teach the students so a student can concentrate properly and learn easily. The orton-gillingham method is language based, multi sensory, structured and cognitive.
