Dyslexia tutors

Orton Gillingham tutors near you

The Orton Gillingham approach is a structured, sequential, multisensory method of teaching reading and spelling. It is particularly effective for children with dyslexia because it breaks down the complex process of reading into smaller, manageable parts. It is important that your child meet with their tutor for a minimum of two times a week. Three or more times a week is even more beneficial but we understand that families have busy lives and that this is not always practical.

Through one-on-one tutoring sessions, our experienced tutors use the Orton Gillingham approach to help children with dyslexia build their reading and spelling skills. By using multisensory techniques that engage all of the child’s senses, we can help them develop a stronger understanding of the building blocks of reading and spelling, such as phonemes and phonics.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dyslexia Tutors:

How long does it take to see improvement when working with a Dyslexia Tutor?

The length of time it takes to see improvement when working with a Dyslexia Tutor varies depending on the individual’s learning needs and the severity of their dyslexia. However, with consistent practice and dedication, most individuals can see improvement in their reading, writing, and spelling skills within a few months.

Can dyslexia tutors help with other learning difficulties?

Dyslexia tutors specialize in working with individuals with dyslexia, but they may also have experience and training in working with other learning difficulties, such as ADHD, dyscalculia, and dysgraphia. It’s essential to discuss your specific learning needs and goals with your tutor to determine if they are the right fit for you.

How is dyslexia in children treated?

Treatment focuses on helping your child achieve the following:

  • Learn to recognize the shorter sounds that make up words (phonemes)
  • Understand that letters and letter strings represent these sounds and words (phonics)
  • Understand what you read (comprehension)
  • Read aloud to develop reading accuracy, speed, and expression (fluency)
  • Accumulate a vocabulary composed of recognized and understood words.

 

What are the causes of dyslexia?

Dyslexia is the most common learning disability. It affects about 5 to 12 percent of children. What causes this lifelong condition? There is no clear answer yet, but researchers are studying several factors including the role of genes and the brain.

How do you know if a 5-year-old child has dyslexia?

  • He or she is not able to relate spelling and sound.
  • He or she cannot identify the sounds that make up words.
  • Cannot recognize words that start with the same letter.
  • He or she cannot read and spell simple words he/she has already learned.
  • Serious difficulties learning the days of the week and the numbers from 1 to 10.
  • Does not have the ability to rhyme words.

These indicators are warning signs. When parents identify any of these problems, it is advisable to consult with a specialist who can determine whether it is a case of dyslexia or another type of disorder. When diagnosing dyslexia, family history, the child’s motor skills and skills in social relationships, the acquisition of habits and the use of language must be considered.

How do you know if a 7-year-old child has dyslexia?

  • Reading speed does not improve at that age.
  • He or she doesn’t know their multiplication tables.
  • Makes natural or basic spelling errors.
  • Unable to construct well-structured written speeches.
  • Frequently uses “that” or “that thing” instead of using specific words to refer to objects and things.

These indicators are warning signs. When parents identify any of these problems, it is advisable to consult with a specialist who can determine whether it is a case of dyslexia or another type of disorder. When diagnosing dyslexia, family history, the child’s motor skills and skills in social relationships, the acquisition of habits and the use of language must be considered.

What happens if dyslexia is not treated?

If the diagnosis of dyslexia is delayed, it can cause more serious reading problems and low self-esteem. Therefore, it is important to recognize the symptoms of dyslexia as early as possible in elementary school and begin specialized reading instruction immediately.
