Orton-Gillingham-Based Strategies (Unbranded). What Works Clearinghouse Intervention Report
What Works Clearinghouse
"Orton-Gillingham" is a broad, multisensory approach to teaching reading and spelling that can be modified for individual or group instruction at all reading levels. Teaching sessions are action oriented with auditory, visual, and kinesthetic elements reinforcing one another. The approach targets persons with the kinds of language processing problems (reading, spelling, and writing) associated with dyslexia. This report focuses on unbranded interventions that are based on general "Orton-Gillingham" principles and interventions that combine multiple branded products based on "Orton-Gillingham" principles. However, no studies of unbranded "Orton-Gillingham"-based strategies that fall within the scope of the Students with Learning Disabilities review protocol meet What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) evidence standards. The lack of studies meeting WWC evidence standards means that, at this time, the WWC is unable to draw any conclusions based on research about the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of unbranded "Orton-Gillingham"-based strategies for students with learning disabilities. (Contains 3 footnotes.)
