ADHD: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder—Decoding
On average, students with a prior ADHD diagnosis with decoding difficulties who received Seeing Stars instruction achieved significant improvements in reading. They made large (statistically significant) standard score changes on all measures. Vocabulary was not a targeted measure of instruction. Additionally, the 19-point percentile increase in Word Recognition and a 20-point percentile increase in Written Language Comprehension puts these students within the normal range (25th–75th percentile).
