REACH Orton-Gillingham Learning Centre Inc. is an academic remediation centre and Orton-Gillingham training centre that was formed to assist individuals who are struggling to learn to read or spell. We’ve been supporting students since 2004 in North Vancouver, and now also have centres in Langley and Richmond, B.C. for student services, and provide OG training to teachers in several countries around the world.
Using the Orton-Gillingham approach to remediating language-based learning difficulties, our staff have all been specifically trained to teach reading, writing and basic language skills to students who have difficulties acquiring these skills. Many students require this kind of intervention, either in a small group or at a one on one level, in order to acquire the literacy and math skills necessary to succeed in school. While some children are able to learn to read and spell in a typical classroom setting, a significant population of students need the information presented in a different way in order to learn. This approach to teaching in the way that the student learns is where REACH comes in.
