We can help!
Speech and Hearing Associates is now offering language-based literacy services conducted by an Orton-Gillingham certified speech language pathologist.
The Orton-Gillingham Approach is a direct, explicit, multisensory, structured, sequential, diagnostic, and prescriptive way to teach literacy when reading, writing, and spelling does not come easily to individuals, such as those with dyslexia.
By combining the training and experience of an American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) certified, New Jersey licensed speech language pathologist with the Orton-Gillingham approach, individuals with weaknesses in the areas of phonological awareness, phonological processing, vocabulary, morphology, reading comprehension, and expression through writing, can be helped.
Services are available as individual 30 minute sessions or 60 minutes groups. Participation in a group is determined by the speech-language pathologists assessment of placement needs . After school, evening, and weekend appointments are available! SHA accepts most insurance.
What is the Orton-Gillingham Approach?
This is a language-based, direct, multi-sensory, and diagnostic way to teach reading and comprehension skills. This phonics-based reading program teaches the basics of word formation before the words themselves, directly involving all of the components of language: phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics.
