At The Prentice School, we pride ourselves on providing an inclusive and nurturing educational environment where every student can thrive, regardless of their unique learning needs. For children facing literacy-based learning challenges, our specialized team of educators plays a pivotal role in their educational journey. Central to our commitment is the presence of dedicated teachers with Orton-Gillingham certification.

Understanding Orton-Gillingham

Orton-Gillingham (OG) is a highly structured, multisensory approach to teaching literacy skills. It is specifically designed to support individuals with dyslexia and other reading difficulties. Our teachers undergo rigorous training and certification in this evidence-based method to ensure they have the expertise needed to address the diverse literacy challenges our students may encounter.

Personalized Learning Plans

One of the key strengths of Orton-Gillingham is its personalized approach. Our OG-certified teachers work closely with students to create individualized learning plans tailored to their specific needs. Whether a child struggles with decoding words, spelling, or reading comprehension, our educators assess their strengths and weaknesses to develop a plan that maximizes their potential.

Multisensory Instruction

Orton-Gillingham relies on multisensory techniques, engaging multiple senses in the learning process. Our teachers incorporate activities that include seeing, hearing, and touching, allowing students to fully grasp and retain information. This approach not only makes learning enjoyable but also caters to different learning styles, ensuring that every student has the opportunity to excel.

Building Confidence and Independence

Beyond academic progress, our Orton-Gillingham certified teachers focus on nurturing confidence and independence in our students. By breaking down complex language concepts into manageable steps and providing continuous positive reinforcement, students gain the self-assurance to overcome literacy challenges.

Collaborative Approach

Our educators work closely with parents, learning support teams, and specialists to create a collaborative network dedicated to each student's success. Regular communication ensures that everyone is aligned in their approach and that the student receives consistent support at school and at home.

A Lifelong Love for Learning

Through the Orton-Gillingham approach, our teachers not only help students overcome challenges but also instill a lifelong love for learning. By fostering a positive, supportive, and engaging environment, we encourage our students to see literacy as a gateway to endless possibilities.

At The Prentice School, our Orton-Gillingham certified teachers are at the heart of our commitment to literacy and inclusivity. With their expertise, dedication, and unwavering belief in each student's potential, we continue to empower young minds to overcome challenges, achieve academic success, and embark on a lifelong journey of learning and discovery.
