Systematic Language Instruction
Our method of instruction is Orton-Gillingham, a multi-sensory approach which involves using visual, auditory, and kinesthetic modes, simultaneously, to create neuropathways for learning.
Our language program is a comprehensive, multisensory program for reading, spelling, cursive handwriting, and alphabet and dictionary skills. This is a program designed for any age. The following methods are integral to our program.
- Simultaneous Multisensory Techniques-presenting information visually, auditorily, and kinesthetically using all learning pathways simultaneously to enhance memory and learning.
- Guided Discovery-teacher presentations combined with a series of carefully structured questions to actively involve students in the learning process (a method that develops problem-solving techniques applicable to other areas of learning). It is both systematic and cumulative.
- Direct Instruction-prescriptive and individualized.
- Regularly Scheduled & Reinforcement-lots of synthetic and analytic instruction. Continual review of previous material before adding new instruction.
