What is a Certified Academic Orton-Gillingham Practitioner?
A Certified Academic Orton-Gillingham Practitioner tutoring is a support service assisting students who are having trouble in specific areas. The student receives support in basic studying skills. They are provided with instruction in a specific subject area by a private instructor.
A Certified Academic Orton-Gillingham Practitioner provides a thorough individualized, remedial approach to learning specific reading, spelling, and writing skills. No gaps are left in the student’s understanding of the concepts that will facilitate processing information. This program always provides a constant review of previous concepts.
How long are the sessions with an Academic Orton-Gillingham Practitioner and what to expect?
The complete program depends on the student’s understanding of the concepts at the sessions. From my experience, student achieve the best results attending at least 2 days a week for 60 minutes per session. A student could complete the program in less than 2 years, attending after school and vacations. Learning through the Orton-Gillingham Program is a process, not a product.
