Dyslexia Training Program. What Works Clearinghouse Intervention Report
What Works Clearinghouse
The "Dyslexia Training Program," developed at the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, is a Tier III reading intervention program that provides intensive phonics instruction to children with dyslexia, primarily in grades two through five. It is a comprehensive two-year program that bridges the gap for school districts in which a trained dyslexia therapist or appropriately trained teacher is not available. The video series offers classroom instruction, while an onsite facilitator provides attention to individual needs and observes progress in the classroom. The program teaches reading and spelling through multisensory lessons with a strong emphasis on phonemic awareness and alphabetic code knowledge. However, no studies of the "Dyslexia Training Program" 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 the "Dyslexia Training Program" on students with learning disabilities.
