Multisensory Teaching Approach  (MTA)

MTA is an Orton-Gillingham based multisensory program designed as an alternative method for teaching students who are struggling with learning to read, write or spell. Designed specifically for the dyslexic student, It has also proven to be beneficial in regular classrooms.

The research of a four year study (Reynolds, V., Vickery, K., and Cochran, S., Annals of Dyslexia, 1987) showed highly significant gains for all remedial students while students in regular classrooms also showed gains.

Addressing the areas of alphabet/dictionary skills, reading, reading comprehension, cursive handwriting, and spelling with guided discovery and multisensory techniques, the students are involved as active participants in their own learning process.  Concepts taught are systematically reviewed to strengthen memory to the point of mastery.
