Barton's AI Engaging Kindergartners with OG

Barton's Academic Interventionist (AI) Ms. Canty supports grades K-2 in Reading and Mathematics. Her use of the Orton Gillingham program advances Barton's lower elementary students' reading abilities to new heights.

Orton-Gillingham is a highly structured approach that breaks reading and spelling down into smaller skills involving letters and sounds and then builds on these skills over time. It was the first approach to use explicit, direct, sequential, systematic, multi-sensory instruction to teach reading, which is effective for all students and essential for teaching students with dyslexia.
