Orton Gillingham Dyslexia Software
If your child or student cannot read at an appropriate grade level, you have come to the right place.
If you are determined to remedy this situation, you will find your solution here.
How the Language tune-Up Kit (LTK) Works
All instruction is provided by prerecorded human voice, so it’s just like working directly with a teacher.
LTK teaches a student how to sound out letter combinations and make them into words. It does this through audio, visual and tactile-kinesthetic (learn by “doing”) exercises.
LTK lesson exercises teach skills in word building, audio recognition (identifying the sounds made by letter combinations), oral reading of words/sentences and stories (with questions), dictation (where the student types phrases/sentences provided by the program), quizzes and sight words (words that do not conform to phonetic spelling rules).
Why It Works
Repetition causes the brain to remember what is taught.
Sequence of instruction ensures minimal confusion.
Multisensory interaction teaches to the student’s strengths while improving their weakest learning pathways.
It’s all Orton-Gillingham.
Our unique Dictation exercises do not exist in any other Orton Gillingham Dyslexia Software available today!

This Orton Gillingham Dyslexia Software integrates the K-8 foundation of literacy skills: alphabet (name, formation, sound), phonemic awareness, phonics (explicit, sequential, simultaneous multisensory), reading and K-8 language arts. Skills are taught and practiced with multiple activities in each lesson with a game-like assessment at the end of each lesson. Students learn, practice, and apply skills, plus reinforce previous skills. This accelerates the learning process boosting student achievement and self-esteem.
Home educators and teachers find LTK to be effective for ALL learning styles: for dyslexia /LLD (language learning difficulties), reading problems, learns differently, needs an engaging/hands-on program. It aids a beginning reader by minimizing confusion, and providing a streamlined, comprehensive foundation that fills in the gaps in their reading capabilities.
Teachers, tutors, and parents truly appreciate this program. The entire Orton-Gillingham curriculum is contained within this reading program and was closely scrutinized by teachers formally trained in the methodology before being released to the general public.
LTK contains user-friendly, phonics-based lesson plans with the structure, strategies, tips, techniques and rules needed to teach phonics for reading. Orton- Gillingham strategies and techniques help solve difficulties with letter reversals, auditory shortcomings, spelling, retention, blends, fluency and comprehension.
No other software program teaches the 104 phonemes that are contained within the Language Tune-Up Kit.
Successful results have been achieved by Reading specialists (Title 1, LAP, RTI, Transition Programs, Special Ed, Learning Differences), reading tutors, classroom teachers speech/language therapists, parents and home educators.
After completing LTK’s 87 lessons,
students can decode and read 90% of
all words in the English language. The
remaining 10% are words that do not
follow word-building rules.
All versions provide instruction
in both English and Spanish.
“The Language Tune-Up Kit has saved our son! After
working with a paid tutor for 3 months we decided to try
a software approach and our child’s progress began to
skyrocket within 2 weeks. He is able to work with the
program with no assistance and enjoys the positive
reinforcement he gets from it. The reports tell me that he
is doing well.”
