Their name is known to many. They are celebrities in their own way and all of them have one thing in common. They have dyslexic.

DYSLEXIC
Dyslexic is a learning difficulty or condition that cannot be cured but can be manageable with the right treatment. It is not a mental disorder or disability. There is still some of us that is not aware of this condition, some choose to ignore or some just choose to be in denial that it exist within the family.

With the lack of experience instructors and proper intervention, it may cause some problems for children in school resulting in teachers not understanding why their student is not making it in class, children feeling low self-esteem ending up growing up to be troubled teenagers and some even grow up with it without any assistance.
THE ORTON-GILLINGHAM APPROACH
The ORTON-GILLINGHAM approach was developed by Dr Samuel Orton in 1920s, a doctor who first discovered dyslexia, together with Anna Gillingham, a gifted teacher and psychologist. Supported over the 70 years by over 100,000 scientific studies, the approach includes five important pillars:
·         Phonemic awareness
·         Systematic Phonics
·         Fluency
·         Vocabulary
·         Comprehension

Their key features are multisensory, sequential, incremental, cumulative, individualized, based on phonograms and explicit.
