IMSE ORTON GILLINGHAM DYSLEXIA INSTRUCTION

We provide structured literacy, dyslexia, and language instruction using an approach accredited by the International Dyslexia Association & based on the Institute for Multi-sensory Education's (IMSE) Orton Gillingham methodology and Structured Literacy model. This methodology is research-based, structured, explicitly taught, & sequential in its design. Our approach meets the recommendations of the National Reading Panel and follows the International Dyslexia Association's Knowledge and Practice Standards. IMSE’s Orton Gillingham Structured Literacy model.  This instruction incorporates a variety of modalities to activate auditory, visual, & kinesthetic pathways in the brain.  This multi-sensory integration is critical to ensure mastery & retention of foundational literacy skills. We look forward to helping your child improve across all areas of literacy!
*Because we are focusing on skill remediation and targeting specific skills in individualized IMSE Orton Gillingham sessions, we do NOT provide assistance with classwork or homework unless it is directly related to the student’s targeted literacy instruction.  For example, we may work on a written expression assignment and provide targeted feedback/”integrated phonics” to provide opportunities to generalize the skills we are learning. 
*School contracts are available for this service.

REMOTE LEARNING FACILITATION

In response to the COVID-19 Roadmap to Reopening School Plans, Fierce Literacy offers in-person or remote instructional facilitation in order to help your child navigate this novel remote-learning world.  These instructional sessions are based on your child/children’s school-based assignments and will utilize research-based strategies and instructional practices to ensure your child as much success with grade-level material in a remote learning environment as he or she would have in a traditional school setting.  We look forward to helping your child in this new instructional modality.
