Assessing the effects of Corrective Reading Decoding B1 with a high school student with intellectual and developmental disabilities: A case study

Peterson, J. L.; Marchand-Martella, N.; Martella, R.
Abstract:
This study examined the effect of five months of instruction with Corrective Reading Decoding B1 (CR) on the decoding skills of a high school student with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Woodcock Johnson III was administered for pre- and posttest measures. Within-program assessments were also administered. Results indicate that following the implementation of CR, the participant demonstrated educationally significant gains in reading skills on the majority of the measures assessed. Improvements occurred on all three reading clusters and across the majority of the subtests. Results from within-program assessments indicted mastery of skills taught within the program. Additionally, gains were evident when scores were compared to the normative group. (Copyright © 2011, National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI). All rights reserved).
