Speech or Language Impairment (SLI)—Decoding
On average, students with an SLI, in addition to decoding difficulties, who received Seeing Stars® instruction achieved significant improvements in reading. They made large (significant) standard score changes on all measures. Additionally, the significant increase in Symbol Imagery, Word Attack, and Word Recognition puts these students within the normal range (25th–75th percentile). Their pre- to posttest results were statistically significant on all measures.
