Key Points:

  • There is no certifiable best method for teaching children who experience
    reading difficulty
  • In the National Reading Panel report on the effects of specific programs, the
    Orton-Gillingham program had the lowest average effect size.
  • Students who experience difficulty acquiring literacy require more careful and
    responsive application of consistent principles by knowledgeable, well-prepared teachers
  • The National Reading Panel’s guidance calls for a broader, more responsive
    instructional approach rather than focusing solely on systematic phonics.
