"This book is an excellent reference to have nearby when using the Orton-Gillingham Approach. It explains all parts of the lesson, provides tips and tricks for teaching each of the concepts and gives word lists and visual cues for each phoneme. I highly recommend this resource for any Orton-Gillingham teacher!"
