Multisensory Structured Language Programs: Content and Principles of Instruction What is taught Phonology and phonological awareness Phonology is the study of sounds and how they work within their environment.
A phoneme is the smallest unit of sound in a given language that can be recognized as being distinct from other sounds in the language. Phonological awareness is the understanding of the internal linguistic structure of words. An important aspect of phonological awareness is phonemic awareness or the ability to segment words into their component sounds.
Sound-symbol association This is the knowledge of the various sounds in the English language and their correspondence to the letters and combinations of letters which represent those sounds.
Sound-symbol association must be taught and mastered in two directions: Additionally, students must master the blending of sounds and letters into words as well as the segmenting of whole words into the individual sounds.
Syllable instruction A syllable is a unit of oral or written language with one vowel sound. Instruction must include the teaching of the six basic types of syllables in the English Language: Syllable division rules must be directly taught in relation to the word structure.
Morphology Morphology is the study of how morphemes are combined from words. A morpheme is the smallest unit of meaning in the language. The curriculum must include the study of base words, roots, and affixes. Syntax Syntax is the set of principles that dictate the sequence and function of words in a sentence in order to convey meaning.
This includes grammar, sentence variation and the mechanics of language.
Semantics Semantics is that aspect of language concerned with meaning. The curriculum from the beginning must include instruction in the comprehension of written language. Systematic and cumulative Multisensory language instruction requires that the organization of material follows the logical order of the language.
The sequence must begin with the easiest and most basic elements and progress methodically to more difficult material. Each step must also be based on those already learned. Concepts taught must be systematically reviewed to strengthen memory.
Direct instruction The inferential learning of any concept cannot be taken for granted. Multisensory language instruction requires the direct teaching of all concepts with continuous student-teacher interaction.
Diagnostic teaching The teacher must be adept at prescriptive or individualized teaching. The teaching plan is based on careful and continuous assessment of the individual's needs.
The content presented must be mastered to the degree of automaticity. Synthetic and analytic instruction Multisensory, structured language programs include both synthetic and analytic instruction.
Synthetic instruction presents the parts of the language and then teaches how the parts work together to form a whole. Analytic instruction presents the whole and teaches how this can be broken down into its component parts.
According to the National Teacher Education Task Force of the International Dyslexia Association, multisensory structured language programs should include the following content and be taught with the following principles of instruction.
The Association Method DuBardand the Lindamood-Bell Method Lindamood -Bell have as their basis the research into hearing impaired and the language impaired individuals. Alphabetic phonics Alphabetic Phonics evolved directly from Orton-Gillingham. It combines all three learning modalities auditory for spelling; visual for reading; kinesthetic for handwriting.
The "Instant Spelling Deck" for daily 3-minute drill focuses on the most probable spelling of each of the forty-four speech sounds. The Initial Reading Deck is a set of 98 cards with 3D pictured key words chosen by students to "unlock" each of the 44 speech sounds.
Bench Mark Measures geared exactly to the curriculum were added to provide periodic proof of students' progress in reading, spelling, handwriting, and alphabetizing-designed both to guide the teachers' presentation pace and to enhance the student's confidence. Multisensory strategies that link visual, auditory, kinesthetic and tactile stimuli help dyslexic students compensate for visual and auditory processing problems.
Kinesthetic and tactile exercises are carefully sequenced and each activity is repeated until the response is automatic. The Herman Method reading curriculum encompasses: For more information contact Lexia Learning Systems, Inc. Individuals become aware of the mouth actions which produce speech sounds.
This awareness becomes the means of verifying sounds within words and enables individuals to become self-correcting in reading and spelling, and speech.
The program initially emphasizes the mastery of the code of the English language, the alphabetic, and phonetic system. It is one of a few programs age appropriate for 5 and 6 year old children.Instructional Strategies for Kindergarten and the Primary Grades The mission of public schooling is to offer every child full and equal educational opportunity regardless of the background, education, and income of the child's parents.
The systematic review provides a summary of the data from the results of a number of individual studies. If the results of the individual studies are similar, a statistical method (called meta-analysis) is used to combine the results.
Aim. This paper offers a discussion of the reading and writing practices that define systematic review. Background. Although increasingly popular, systematic review has engendered a critique of the claims made for it as a more objective method for summing up research findings than other kinds of reviews.
