Overview - PCI READING PROGRM LVL 1 SET OF 28 ADDTL BOOKS
Turn Nonreaders into Successful Readers!
The PCI Reading Program is a scientifically research-based curriculum created specifically to teach students with developmental disabilities, autism, and significant learning disabilities to read. Level One teaches 140 basic sight words from the Dolch and Fry lists and "real-world" words through a comprehensive system of repetition, "hands-on" practice, controlled-vocabulary reading, and high-interest activities. Students progress from reading individual words to 8-12 word sentences. Level One includes 28 books, ranging in length from 8 to 12 pages. By the end of Level One, nonreaders will have progressed to approximately a 1.0 reading level.
PCI Reading Program Level One is designed as a one-on-one program and takes at least one full school year to complete.
Learn Five Words and Read a Book
The five-step lesson cycle is based on visual discrimination and is designed to teach students to automatically recognize and correctly pronounce one word at a time. As each new word is learned, previous words are continually reviewed, which promotes both short- and long-term retention. Every word is practiced and reviewed over 100 times. For every five words learned, students are invited to read a full-color book about the everyday life of a contemporary adolescent character.
For Nonreaders of All Ages
The program is designed for nonreaders age 5 to adult, the activities and books feature realistic illustrations, and the story lines encompass important life skills and lessons. The program materials use repetition and review along with frequent praise to guarantee successful learning and to increase students' self-confidence. Students do not need to know the alphabet to begin Level One. The only prerequisites for the program are:
• Students must be able to follow simple, one-sentence directions.
• Students must be able to respond to a teacher request either verbally or by pointing.
• Students must be able to visually discriminate between words.
