When math instructors evaluate and say goodbye to the current school year, the best teachers and Orton-Gillingham practitioners begin to think about what they can do to make math concepts come alive for students who struggle in math, and what will have **“sticking power”** in September and beyond.

We’re often asked what makes OG Math different from current classroom math instruction. Although a number of factors generally work together to contribute to educational success, there are three key elements for success in math.

**They are direct instruction, employing multisensory techniques and step by step teaching techniques.**

The **research evidence strongly favours direct instruction** over discovery-based instruction for nurturing understanding, deeper learning and better problem solvers. To be successful, instructional procedures must cater to the limitations of a student’s **working memory**, which can hold only a limited amount of fresh information. This is particularly important for beginning learners or struggling learners who have difficulty focusing on new ideas when their working memory is overwhelmed. That will never happen in OG Math Classes.
