This episode is part two of our previous episode, Season 1. Episode 5: How Dr. Samuel Orton and Anna Gillingham’s Work Support Social-Emotional Learning. In episode five, we did a deep dive into the history of Dr. Samuel Orton and Anna Gillingham, we explained the principles of the Orton-Gillingham method, and we covered the first five points of the Ortonian prescription. If you haven’t given it a listen yet, go do that now!

In this episode, we continue the discussion of the Ortonion prescription by breaking down points six through ten. 

We preview the exciting topics and guests we’ll be featuring in 2022.

Then we wrap things up by answering a listener question regarding middle school intervention.

Tune in for a better understanding of the final five points in the Ortonian prescription and how they relate to and uphold the principles of the Orton-Gillingham approach.
