Orton-Gillingham is a research-based reading and spelling methodology of teaching that has effectively helped children with dyslexia since the 1930s. It is phonics-based and teaches word structure rather than whole word meanings. Teaching with an O-G approach utilizes visual, auditory, and kinesthetic modalities to increase the number of neural pathways in the brain. It is a structured yet flexible program to accommodate the needs of students with dyslexia.
LiteraSee uses memorable visuals, interesting kinesthetic tools, and spoken sounds to teach. While seeing your finger write on a textured surface and saying the sound aloud, your brain will have increased neural activity and learning. Mutli-sensory tools can be a simple (food color dyed) rice tray, a plastic needlepoint mat, or any fabric.
Children with dyslexia struggle to identify a spoken word's beginning, middle, and ending sounds. LiteraSee uses isolation, blending, substitution, and deletion activities to strengthen phonemic awareness. Please note the blocks are not available for purchase at this time.
LiteraSee introduces students to sentence structure, nouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, and articles. We include the best online resources for free, grade-appropriate worksheets to practice grammar.
Students learn prefixes and suffixes alongside the history of the English language and English language origins. The historical influences on our language begin with explaining why we have so many sight words and end with Latin and Greek roots in the upper levels.
LiteraSee lessons follow a consistent format, so following a script is unnecessary. At the end of each lesson, read together, review with games, practice phonemic awareness, or do fluency exercises as time permits. While the format is structured, teaching is at the pace and level of the student.
Through Socratic questioning, students learn to make connections that are critical for understanding. Their answers give insights into which concepts need to be retaught and practiced. After each lesson, write notes and plan for the next session.
