Multisensory Approach

The curriculum used as the basis for tutoring and tutor training at all Children’s Dyslexia Centers integrates principles of two of the leading Orton-Gillingham approaches. The Orton-Gillingham approach, developed in the 1920’s, uses a sequential, multisensory phonetic approach. Thus, a variety of sensory data is used to help children understand the written word.

Visual

A learning style where ideas, concepts, data, and other information are associated with images and techniques

Auditory

A learning style where a person learns through listening.

Kinesthetic

A learning style in which learning takes place by the student actually doing an activity that reinforces the concepts being taught.
