After decades of debate about methodology in the field of reading acquisition and literacy instruction, researchers agree that these essential elements should begin in early childhood: exemplary instruction, differentiated instruction, phonological awareness instruction, explicit vocabulary instruction, and integrated reading experiences in reading.

In this Sounds Sensible® research paper, the teacher truly does make the difference. Based on Orton-Gillingham principles, Sounds Sensible offers structured, sequential, hands-on instruction, making it uniquely effective as part of an intervention, remedial, or inclusion program, or as a core program in beginning reading classrooms.

Explore this research paper to learn more about how Sounds Sensible can support all early readers and help them get on the road toward mastery and reading success.
