Orton Gillingham Reading Method
Using the OG Method, letters which represent the single sounds of familiar speech are presented to the student, then immediately synthesized into words that carry meaning. By introducing the letters simultaneously through hearing, seeing, and feeling, the student’s weaknesses are lessened. READ MORE
Structured Word Inquiry
Have you ever tried to spell a word and thought, “This is crazy!” English is not crazy once you find the sense in it. Spelling does not change through time, but pronunciation of a word does. With this method, you can spell words without relying on “sounding out”.
Kim’s optimism is infectious. It leads to greater achievement in my son. She provides hope and confidence for kids who are learning to read.
Once dyslexic children learn how to learn, nothing is going to narrow their mind. Kim has taught my daughter how to explore and discover the English language, opening up good habits for a lifetime. Thank you Kim!Abby R.
Kim has been an ideal teacher who used her Orton-Gillingham skills as a bridge for my daughter to cross into the world of reading. Now, having facilitated that crossing, she invites her to build bridges of her own.Karen S.
