The Orton-Gillingham approach was created by Dr. Samuel Torrey Orton, Anna Gillingham and Bessie Stillman to remediate the language processing challenges associated with dyslexia.
The Christ School Bridge teaches the science of the English language so students can benefit from a proven, systematic approach to reading. What can appear to be an arbitrary and confusing system to a child with dyslexia becomes predictable and clear. Through multisensory practice and specialized instruction, our dyslexic learners unlock the power of print. Our methodology uses a structured lesson plan involving visual, auditory and kinesthetic/tactile learning. Phonemic awareness, phonics, morphology, grammar, vocabulary and reading comprehension are taught using a systematic, cumulative and sequential approach. Teachers design lesson plans based on careful observation and error analysis. Instruction addresses specific challenges unique to our students as opposed to delivering a scripted “one size fits all” program.
