Alphabetic Phonics. What Works Clearinghouse Intervention Report
What Works Clearinghouse
"Alphabetic Phonics" is an ungraded, multisensory curriculum distributed by School Specialty Intervention (formerly Educators Publishing Service) that teachers the structure of the English language and can be taught to individuals or small groups of elementary or secondary school students. This phonetic program teaches reading, handwriting, spelling, verbal and written expression, and comprehension by simultaneously engaging students in visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning. Each daily, one-hour session alternates between ten different activities: alphabet, review of letters, review of sounds, multisensory introduction of a new letter, reading, cursive handwriting, spelling, verbal expression, review, and listening. However, no studies of "Alphabetic Phonics" that fall within the scope of the Students with Learning Disabilities review protocol meet What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) evidence standards. The lack of studies meeting WWC evidence standards means that, at this time, the WWC is unable to draw any conclusions based on research about the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of "Alphabetic Phonics" on students with learning disabilities. (Contains 3 footnotes.)
