The ABD's of Reading: A Program for the Learning-Disabled.
An instructional program that teaches decoding skills to learning disabled children was developed to serve as a supplement to whatever reading program is used in the classroom. As a result of task analysis, the program's instructional sequence begins with auditory tasks analyzing syllables and short words into phonemes, then blending these phonemes into syllables and words. Once proficiency in these tasks is observed, decoding is taught. The program is designed to be cost-effective; it does not require the same amount of support (funds and trained personnel) that reading programs in normal school situations require.
