Project Read® Phonology
Students with a Specific Learning Disability

Project Read® Phonology was found to have no discernible effects on general reading achievement for students with learning disabilities. Although one of the studies reviewed by the WWC meets evidence standards and collected data in the alphabetics and reading comprehension domains, the data were insufficient to confirm the author’s findings in these domains.

Project Read® is a multisensory language arts curriculum designed for use in a classroom or group setting. Two main objectives of the program are to use language in all its forms, and to use responsive instruction rather than preplanned textbook lessons. The program emphasizes direct instruction, and lessons move from letter-sounds to words, sentences, and stories. Project Read® has three strands: Phonics/Linguistics, Reading Comprehension, and Written Expression, which are integrated at all grade levels, though the emphasis of the specific strands differs by grade.
