It is important to remember that although children may complete an Orton-Gillingham based tutoring program, as they move into the upper grades in school, they may need a "refresher."  As the curriculum becomes more complicated, vocabulary words become larger and less familiar, and the amount of information a child is expected to take in becomes much faster in pace, the child may need to review.
There is an intermediate Orton-Gillingham program.  There are fewer tutors for this program, but you can locate a certified tutor through the International Dyslexia Association at  Search for your local branch.  Give them a call, and they can put you in touch with a certified tutor.    

You can also locate tutors through Masonic Learning Centers in your area.  

Dyslexia is life-long, but with proper tutoring and accommodations, children can be very successful!
