Why the Orton-Gillingham Approach to Reading Is So Powerful - Marie Rippel
Literary expert, Marie Rippel, created her curriculum, All About Reading, based on the Orton-Gillingham approach to reading. This multisensory teaching method addresses all three pathways to learning (visual, auditory, kinesthic) simultaneously. In this presentation you will learn how it instills confidence, overcomes learning disorders, and takes the guesswork out of learning to read for your child, ensuring success.
All About Learning Press, Inc. is the publisher of the award-winning, multisensory language arts programs, All About Reading and All About Spelling. Marie Rippel, author and curriculum developer of the programs, started the company in 2006 with a passion to teach all children to read and spell fluently. That passion was born out of her need to teach her own severely dyslexic child to read and spell because none of the existing programs were working. Armed with a literacy education, thousands of hours of research, a thorough understanding of the Orton-Gillingham methods, and the giftedness to make even the most complex strategies simple and easy to understand, she created the programs that have gone on to teach tens of thousands of children to read and spell fluently, even those who struggle with learning.
