Orton Gillingham (O-G) is a structured, multi-sensory approach to teaching spelling, reading, grammar, and written expression for students who struggle to read due to language-based learning disabilities such as dyslexia. Visit http://www.ortonacademy.org/ to learn more about Orton Gillingham. Jennings is a member of the Academy of Orton Gillingham Practitioners and Educators at the Fellow level.
Jennings is also a Certified Math Trainer for Orton Gillingham International. This approach utilizes the explicit, systematic, multi-sensory approach associated with O-G while teaching the concepts of mathematics to students who benefit from more concrete explanations. Math tutoring is currently only available as an add-on service for existing clients receiving Orton Gillingham reading and writing services.
Tutoring sessions occur at a minimum of twice weekly for 45-60 minutes per session.
Initial Reading and Spelling Evaluations are available for clients as well as those seeking more information about their child's reading profile. Reading and Spelling Evaluations include 45-90 minutes of testing, a parent interview, a comprehensive written report, as well as a consultation including recommendations and potential next steps.
Additionally, Jennings offers consultations regarding school placement, school services, and navigating the IEP process. Please contact Jennings for more information.
