Hi Liz! I just thought I'd let you know about a program you may want to take a look at and mention, regarding systematic and explicit, multisensory phonics instruction:
Not only is "Go Phonics" a phonics program and designed to meet the needs of the dyslexic/LLD students, it is also a balanced literacy program that includes reading, handwriting, spelling, grammar, punctuation, comprehension, fluency, creative writing activities, K-2 language arts skills---with these skills practiced and experienced in 6 volumes of phonetically sequenced stories. By the way, it is Orton-Gillingham and Slingerland based and compatible--and has additional techniques and strategies that are of great benefit. It was developed by a professional mother daughter team to create an entire set of integrated tools and lessons that would support this method. Reading specialists, teacher, tutors, and parents like the program especially because of the stories, and also because of the set of 48 Go Phonics games for word decoding practice. Thanks for giving so much attention to dyslexia!
