The mission of the Augustine Literacy Project is to improve the
reading, writing and spelling abilities of low-income children and teens
who struggle with literacy skills. The project trains and supports
volunteer tutors who provide free, long term, 1-to-1 instruction using
the Orton-Gillingham approach and Wilson Reading System®
Orton-Gillingham is a structured, multisensory, phonetic teaching
approach that has been proven to work with those who have
language related learning difficulties. Augustine tutors use Wilson®
materials and lessons include the five essential components of
research-based reading instruction as defined by the National
Reading Panel: phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency
