WWC IRSLDAP10 Alphabetic Phonics
Alphabetic Phonics is an ungraded, multisensory curriculum distributed by School Specialty Intervention that teaches 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. The What Works Clearinghouse review of the research on Alphabetic Phonics for students with disabilities identified 13 studies that were published or released between 1989 and 2009. No studies that fall within the scope of the Students with Learning Disabilities review protocol meet 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 for students with learning disabilities.

WWC IRSLDPR10 Project Read Phonology
Project Read is a multisensory language arts curriculum designed for use in a classroom or group setting.

The What Works Clearinghouse review of the effectiveness research on Project Read identified one study that falls within the scope of the Students with Learning Disabilities review protocol that meets WWC evidence standards, and presents sufficient outcome data to allow the WWC to make a determination of the effectiveness of Project Read® Phonology. The study included 66 students with learning disabilities in kindergarten through grade 4 from five school districts. The Clearinghouse review found Project Read Phonology to have no discernible effects on general reading achievement for students with learning disabilities.

WWC IRBRSF09 Intervention: Success for All
Success for All (SFA)® is a whole-school reform model that includes a reading, writing, and oral language development program for students in prekindergarten through eighth grade. Classroom reading instruction is delivered in daily 90-minute blocks to students grouped by reading ability. Immediate intervention with tutors who are certified teachers is given each day to those students who are having difficulty reading at the same level as their classmates.

This intervention report focuses on the reading component of SFA®, which is often implemented in the context of the SFA® whole-school reform program. Although the whole-school reform program has key components that are implemented in each school, school sites may vary considerably in the number of personnel used to implement SFA®, particularly tutors and family support staff. The reading curricula are essentially the same at all schools, with each school receiving the same training, coaching support, and materials. Ratings presented in this report are not disaggregated by the variations in implementation of whole-school reforms.
