WWC Summary of Evidence for this Intervention
Dyslexia Training Program
The Dyslexia Training Program, developed at the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, is a Tier III reading intervention program that provides intensive phonics instruction to children with dyslexia, primarily in grades two through five. It is a comprehensive two-year program that bridges the gap for school districts in which a trained dyslexia therapist or appropriately trained teacher is not available. The video series offers classroom instruction, while an onsite facilitator provides attention to individual needs and observes progress in the classroom. The program teaches reading and spelling through multisensory lessons with a strong emphasis on phonemic awareness and alphabetic code knowledge. For students, the Dyslexia Training
Program provides 336 one-hour lessons on DVD using two
trained dyslexia therapists. For educators, there are five orientation and training modules for staff development and supplemental teaching strategies.
As of July 2010, no studies of Dyslexia Training Program were found that fell within the
scope of the Students with a Specific Learning Disability review protocol and met WWC evidence standards.
Therefore, the WWC is unable to draw any research based conclusions
about the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of Dyslexia Training Program to improve outcomes in this area.

An indicator of the effect of the intervention, the improvement index can be interpreted as the expected change in percentile rank for an average comparison group student if that student had received the intervention.
For more, please see the WWC Glossary entry for improvement index.
The indicator represents the highest level of similarity found between your students and each of the high-quality studies of the intervention. Three filled in ovals indicates that at least one study that met standards was conducted on students very similar to yours. Clicking on the indicator for a study will provide information on the similarity for each of the characteristics you selected.
