Orton-Gillingham Part 2: Principles of Orton-Gillingham

Posted by Stephanie Cork on 7th Sep 2017

Orton-Gillingham programs are based on six main principles of instruction.  The first three (Phonics-based, Structured/Systematic, and Direct-Instruction) are recommendations of the National Reading Panel.  The next three take it above and beyond what the National Reading Panel recommends (Multisensory, Sequential, and Cumulative). Find out more about each principle in Part 2 of the series “Orton-Gillingham: A Multisensory Structured Language Approach.”
