Our Reading Specialists are not tutors.  Reading Specialists are educators who teach students how to read in a different way - a way that was designed specifically for people with dyslexia and other learning disabilities.  Think of it as Reading Therapy.

When a student comes to OGRS, he/she/they receive individualized Orton Gillingham reading and spelling instruction from our expertly-trained Staff Specialists or Specialists-in-Training. Our Specialists are supervised by Karen Sonday, Fellow at Academy of Orton Gillingham Practitioners and Educators and co-author of The Sonday System line of OG-based reading curricula.

The journey of each student is unique.  There is no preset timeline for success because each student's strengths and challenges are different.  We usually say to plan on being with us for the school year.  We evaluate as we go.

Why tuition instead of fee-for-service?
We see students 2 - 3 times weekly, but the number of sessions per month varies based on the calendar. Since our students are generally here on a long-term basis, we use an average based on a typical calendar year. We assume that there will be occasional absences due to student illness, weather, the center's closed dates, and emergencies so these are taken into account. Additionally, rather than invoicing you for every phone call, email, report, and parent meeting, we include all of these in the package. All materials used for home practice are included.
