"Sensational Strategies for Teaching the Beginning Reader"
Orton-Gillingham is basically multi-sensory, kinesthetic, phonics. Studies, at the National Institute of Health, have shown that at least 95% of even the poorest readers can learn to read at grade level, if they are given early and proper phonics instruction. By providing early intervention with phonemic awareness, IMSE hopes to reduce the number of children struggling with reading, writing, and spelling.
The Orton-Gillingham parent's product contains an instructional DVD software, a parent's teaching manual, as well as the necessary supplies to begin using Orton-Gillingham right out of the box. Parents can give their children the phonemic awareness they will need to be successful learning reading in the general education classroom.
