Traditional instructional programs are not appropriate for people with Dyslexia. Dyslexics do not process language as others do. They need instruction that is clear, organized, and multi-sensory. Along with these techniques, the structure of written English is taught-sounds (phonemes), prefixes, suffixes, roots and common spelling rules. There are many good programs incorporating the Orton-Gillingham Multisensory approach to learning. Some of the most popular Orton-Gillingham programs include: The Stevenson Language, The Recipe for Reading, Spalding The Writing Road To Reading, Wilson, Herman Method, Slingerland, and Alphabetic Phonics.
