You want to provide the best research-based reading intervention for your student.
But you are struggling to find the materials you need in an easily accessible format. You want to meet your student's learning needs but everything available is designed to support "all struggling readers". How is that possible when the struggles vary from student to student? How do you determine where to start a program and then how do you continue to find materials when the one approach provided isn't working or you need additional practice activities?
Let us help you.
Not only do we have the three levels of intervention curriculum with 30 individual lessons in each level to guide you on your Orton-Gillingham journey, but we have an amazing community here to support you every step of the way. We are also listening to your needs and consistently adding to our program to better meet the needs of your students.
Each Lesson Contains
A 5-10 minute video lesson walking you through the most important aspects and strategies for teaching the specific skills presented in the lesson. This is a great opportunity to get some additional tips and tricks on presenting the rules, phonograms, division patterns, etc.
A full instructor manual with a comprehensive script to follow. If you feel more comfortable with OG feel free to ditch the script, it is there primarily to guide you as you begin the journey. Each lesson's instructor manual contains 4-5 pages including a phonological awareness activity and a full differentiated spelling list.
A student workbook containing word lists, skill development activities including phonological awareness development, vocabulary and multiple meaning development, and comprehension skills. There are typically between 5-10 student workbook pages per lesson.
Extra activities that can be used as home practice, or to further develop skills specific to your students' identified areas of needs. Extra activities include: additional word lists, nonsense word lists, spelling review practice, word sorts, and more.
The comprehensive curriculum contains over 1,500 pages of materials that can support an entire year or more of intervention in a structured, systematic, and cumulative presentation.

Is this program right for me?
This curriculum is designed to be implemented by therapists, educators, speech language pathologists, or parents of students with dyslexia and other struggling readers. It is designed to be implemented in an individual or small group format. The materials can be adapted to be completed in a classroom-setting but are easiest to customize in smaller settings. If you are looking for ways to adapt your classroom to meet the needs of struggling readers consider checking out our Teacher Trainings.
This program is a great fit if:
You are ready to use a more adaptable research-based intervention method to support your dyslexic students.
You have a student who struggles with Oral & Written Language Disorder (a specific reading deficit with difficulty in language such as a mixed expressive-receptive language disorder).
You want to use an Orton-Gillingham methodology but don't want to spend thousands of dollars on an inflexible curriculum that may or may not work for your student.
