My 9 year old son has been attending the 5 week summer session at RITES for Orton- Gillingham skills for the past two years. As a result, his confidence and skill level have benefitted immensely. This program has been wonderful, not only because it makes use of the abundance of free time in the summer, but also because it provides the consistency he needs to ensure his academic success. The teachers in the program are true professionals who genuinely understand the many co-existing conditions that occur with kids with learning differences (such as attention issues or social/peer related issues). They work to help the child not only to build skills for reading, but also to develop strategies for better listening or for more appropriate peer interaction. Not only is the program effective, but he also truly enjoys going. Prior to O.G. training, learning had always been an arduous chore for my son. RITES has helped him to become motivated, because he now realizes that if he tries, he can actually do it. He is currently in 4th grade and is reading at a solidly average 4th grade level--and actually loves to read!
