The Reading Gateway
Individual reading instruction based on the Orton-Gillingham approach.
Research has shown that systematic and explicit instruction in phonemic awareness is a critical component of reading instruction to ensure that children understand that the words in oral language are composed of smaller speech sounds — sounds that will be linked to the letters of the alphabet. Phonics instruction produces significant benefits for children from kindergarten through 6th grade and for children having difficulty learning to read. The Orton-Gillingham approach presents systematic phonics instruction in a planned sequence of phonics elements. At The Reading Gateway, we present these foundational skills in a creative, fun and engaging fashion. Each lesson is written specifically for your child based on how he or she learns and is designed for your child's success. Lessons are multisensory to enhance memory and learning.
Our evidence-based reading instruction includes systematic and direct instruction in phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.
The Reading Gateway is located in Rancho Santa Margarita.

Stanford Professor Bruce McCandliss found that beginning readers who focus on letter-sound relationships, or phonics, increase activity in the area of their brains best wired for reading. Click here to read about the Stanford brain wave study.
Struggling readers flourish when exposed to the structured patterns of explicit, systematic phonics instruction.
