So, being the avid educator I’m, though retired, I used to be decided to seek out an strategy for her. I began with a guide titled Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Present of Dyslexia: Why A few of the Smartest Individuals CanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t Learn.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Then, I wished additional tutorial information on the topic, so I discovered a guide in our native library that acquainted me particularly with the Orton-Gillingham strategy. I used to be bought.
I knew my granddaughter was good, as a result of she might course of info orally and retrieve it by means of her reminiscence, however the public college strategy to studying was not working. After 4 years in a public training one-on-one studying program, she nonetheless was not studying. She simply couldn’t decipher the scripted prose in textual content.
Greater than a 12 months in the past, I signed up for the introductory course for the Orton-Gillingham program. After finishing that, I signed up and attended its nationwide convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. For 2 days, I attended classes educating me on the Orton-Gillingham strategy.
