Orton Gillingham and Lindamood-Bell Reading Programs
Autastic Avenues is trained in using the Orton Gillingham Reading Program. Orton Gillingham is a language based, multi-sensory approach to reading instruction. The intent of the program is to create a foundation for language that fosters a fluid tradition from learning-to-read to reading-to-learn. It is designed for all ages
The foundation of Orton Gillingham is the 5 part lesson plan:
- Three Part Drill – Visual, Auditory/Kinesthetic, Blending, Vowel Intensive learning
- Teaching a New Concept – Multi-sensory experience
- Application through Dictation (Pound and Finger Tapping Method for words and sentences)
- Decoding and Learning Centers- Multi-sensory words, phonemic awareness, vocabulary, fluency
- Red Words – Sight Words
The Lindamood-Bell approach and programs provide powerful methods and tools for learning. The Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing Program for Reading, Spelling, and Speech (LiPS) uses feedback from the senses of hearing, seeing, and feeling to aid in the development of phonological awareness.
