Alphabetic Phonics
Students with a Specific Learning Disability

As of July 2010 no studies of Alphabetic Phonics were found that fell within the scope of the Students with a Specific Learning Disability review protocol and met WWC design standards. Therefore, the WWC is unable to draw any research based conclusions about the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of Alphabetic Phonics to improve outcomes in this area.
Alphabetic Phonics is an ungraded, multisensory curriculum distributed by School Specialty Intervention (formerly Educators Publishing Service) 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. Each daily, one-hour session alternates between ten different activities: alphabet, review of letters, review of sounds, multisensory introduction of a new letter, reading, cursive handwriting, spelling, verbal expression, review, and listening.
