Senior Infants - 6th Class
At Premier Tuition Centre, we understand that children with dyslexia can learn how to read, write and spell just as well as everyone else but that they need to be taught in a highly structured, sequential and explicit way.
As primary school teachers and teacher-educators, we also understand that this kind of approach is often not taught at school because the majority of children learn to read through traditional ways of teaching that simply do not work for children with dyslexia.
The Orton-Gillingham Approach
Since September 2021, we have been implementing a programme which integrates the Orton-Gillingham approach into our literacy classes for children with dyslexia. This renowned approach is a “direct, explicit, multisensory, structured, sequential, diagnostic, and prescriptive way to teach literacy when reading, writing, and spelling does not come easily to individuals, such as those with dyslexia.”
