Dyslexia tutors can be trained in a multitude of different dyslexia tutoring methods and approaches. For parents, this can make it rather difficult when choosing a dyslexia tutor. The question arises as to which dyslexia tutoring method is the best. Even though there are many dyslexia tutoring methods out there, in our opinion, the best ones are all based on a phonetic approach to reading. Phonics are important for all readers, but for dyslexics, they are absolutely vital. So, a dyslexia tutoring method should be designed with a phonics-based approach. With this in mind, some research reveals that most of the phonics based methods of dyslexia tutoring are based on the Orton Gillingham Method. Many dyslexia tutors are trained in the O.G. Method, and it has been around for many years.
Here at Dyslexia Connect Online Tutoring, our own method is based on the Orton Gillingham approach. In addition to this, we have also added some elements that work particularly well online, and create an interesting learning environment for our online students. All of our dyslexia tutors are fully trained in our method, and have many years of experience in working with dyslexic students. In addition to formal training in a dyslexia tutoring method, experience is also a great asset, because dyslexia tutors tend to learn a great deal about their profession in the first couple of years of tutoring, as well as beyond.
If you are considering signing a child up for tutoring, the internet is a great way to research different methods.
