If your child has not succeeded in any school "reading pull out" programs or traditional reading tutoring, stop the torture! Your child likely needs an Orton-Gillingham based reading program that is multi-sensory, systematic, and does not encourage guessing at words. Please do not let your struggling reader stay involved in any program that encourages "guessing" at words. This will only serve to confuse and frustrate your child more. Rote memorization of spelling words is also not an effective strategy for a dyslexic student.
