Hello! My name is Amanda and I am a level 1 certified tutor trained to implement the Orton-Gillingham Apporach to students who show charcteristics of dyslexa. 


What is dyslexia?


“dys- the “dys” part of dyslexia means lack of ability

lexia- the “lexia” part of dyslexia means with language

Therefore, the term dyslexia simply means lack of ability with language.
