  • Is your child reading below grade level? 

  • Is spelling extremely challenging? 

  • Does your child have trouble sounding out words and have b-d confusion? 

They probably have Dyslexia, but don’t worry. There is hope and there is help!​

​​​I am currently in the process of getting my certificate for Barton tutoring.

Tools to Help

  • There are many different types of dyslexia 

  • If the primary problem is with spelling and reading an Orton-Gillingham program may help

  • Orton-Gillingham teaches the connection between sounds and letters

  • Orton-Gillingham is a multi-sensory approach to teaching reading and spelling

  • Barton Reading & Spelling System is one of the best Orton-Gillingham based programs out there

The Barton Reading & Spelling System

Like other programs based on Orton–Gillingham, Barton is “multisensory.” It uses all the senses to help kids make connections between sounds and words.

Barton aims to take the guesswork out of reading and spelling. It does this by having students memorize rules and practice using them with real and nonsense words.

Before they start the program, students are screened to ensure they have the basic skills they need to succeed. There are 10 levels in the program. All students start at the same level and follow the same, scripted teaching plan.

A typical session is one-on-one and lasts about one hour.

Students are assessed at the end of each level. They don’t move on unless they show mastery of what they have been taught. It can take between two and four years of twice-weekly sessions for students to complete all 10 levels.
