Speech or Language Impairment (SLI)—Decoding
On average, students with a prior SLI 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. Additionally, the significant increases in Symbol Imagery, Word Attack, and Word Recognition resulted in reading comprehension to now enter the normal range (25th–75th percentile).
