The scientifically validated  Orton-Gillingham Approach is used in the classroom and in one-on-one Language Fundamentals Instruction provided to each student for 45 minutes a day, four days a week. Each teacher seeks to understand how an individual learns and devises an appropriate, individualized teaching strategy for the student.
