The First "R": Evidence-Based Reading Instruction for Students with Learning Disabilities
Ritchey, Kristen D.
Theory Into Practice, v50 n1 p28-34 2011
Students with learning disabilities (LD) represent a significant proportion of students enrolled in U.S. schools. Research suggests that students with LD in reading benefit from specialized reading instruction, and effective reading instruction can be characterized as explicit, intensive, and systematic. Examples of evidence-based interventions that follow these principles for students across grade levels are reviewed. (Contains 2 tables.)
