Description

Dr. Samuel Orton and Anna Gillingham were pioneers in the field of dyslexia, and their Orton-Gillingham approach, sometimes referred to as OG, is considered the most crucial and significant reading intervention designed specifically for children and adults with dyslexia. The Gillingham Manual serves as the backbone of this approach. The Orton-Gillingham approach is highly flexible and can be adapted for use with individuals or small groups. This multisensory phonics technique begins with students learning the sounds of letters and then progresses to building these letter-sounds into words. Advanced structural elements such as syllable types, roots, and affixes are also covered. Students use auditory, visual, and kinesthetic associations to reinforce concepts. The Gillingham Manual covers reading and spelling, including a history of the English Language to explain some of its peculiar spellings and pronunciations. It provides training for older students in sound symbols, writing, spelling patterns and generalizations, handwriting, and dictionary technique. Skills addressed include:



  • History of the English language

  • Sound-symbol relationships

  • Letter formation

  • Spelling generalizations

  • Dictionary use

  • Short and long vowel sounds

  • Digraphs

  • Diphthongs

  • Affixes and roots

  • Word structure

  • Consonant sounds

  • Decoding and encoding words


This is the 8th Edition of the manual. Please note that this item is available for purchase by homeschools only.
