About the LTK
The Virtual School for K to HS helps each student achieve their grade-level reading proficiency. The LTK is a highly effective set of tools used by teachers in over 600 schools to teach students with learning and behavior difficulties struggling with reading proficiency. Available for 25+ years, the LTK is constantly being enhanced and improved.
Monitor students’ progress and adjust teaching processes via our easy to use online Teacher’s Portal. The Portal includes assessment results (given regularly) and comprehensive reports enabling teachers to find the gaps in their students’ foundational skills and easily adjust the learning process.
The LTK is highly effective as a main Web-based literacy platform — a key part of a supplemental tool for students from the ES to MS and HS level. The LTK curriculum is based on the Orton-Gillingham method — a widely recognized and time-proven method that is also aligned to the Common Core for ELA standards.
The LTK includes a learning management system (LMS) that is used to deliver the specially designed interactive content and provide testing (assessments) and communications between all the stakeholders. Educators control the entire educational process and manage their students via a simple to use online web portal.

The LTK uses the time-tested Orton-Gillingham Method to guide its instruction philosophy. This technique has a few main pillars: multimodality, repetition, and sequence. Mulisensory engagement is achieved through such activities as having students trace over letters with their fingers as they hear words spoken, so as to associate the tactile with the audible senses. Repetition simply reinforces student learning to make common pathways perform automatically. Additionally, the Orton-Gillingham Method follows a well-structured curriculum that increases in complexity in gradual steps and at appropriate times. Special education teachers know the value of Orton-Gillingham techniques, but training new staff in this method can be costly and time-consuming. This is one of the main reasons the LTK is so invaluable.
The online version can be used on all modern devices, including MAC and Windows computers and laptops, iPads, tablets, iPhones and Android Phones, and Chromebooks, from home, in school, and on the go.
