Orton-Gillingham was initially designed to help those with Dyslexia (which affects 1 in 5 people), Tara believes that all children and adults deserve to learn with this strategy/system. Currently this is not often used in our public elementary classrooms, but Tara wishes it was because she can see a massive difference in confidence in the students that she is honoured to teach. This is why she is investing so much time and money to become certified as an Orton-Gillingham facilitator/teacher.
