For some students, math is a road traveled in small steps. The principles of Orton-Gillingham are important components of effective math instruction.
A successful multisensory approach leads the student through small increments of understanding toward unifying themes in mathematics. Student’s strengths and needs are recognized and addressed with built-in “checks for error,” as well as a system for building confidence and competence.
