"Take Flight": The Evolution of an Orton Gillingham-Based Curriculum
Ring, Jeremiah J.; Avrit, Karen J.; Black, Jeffrey L.
Annals of Dyslexia, v67 n3 p383-400 Oct 2017
Thirty years ago in this journal, Aylett Royall Cox reported on the development of "Alphabetic Phonics," a revision of the existing Orton Gillingham treatment for children with dyslexia. This paper continues that discussion and reports on the evolution of that curriculum as it is represented in a comprehensive dyslexia treatment program informed by intervention research. The paper describes the curriculum and reports data from a hospital-based learning disabilities clinic that provides qualified support for treatment efficacy and the value of added comprehension instruction. The results are then discussed in the context of current and future issues in dyslexia intervention.
