Massachusetts Students Receiving Seeing Stars Instruction Make Significant Improvements in Reading

 

Background
Clifford M. Granger Elementary School in Feeding Hills, Massachusetts, serves a large percentage of students who are at-risk of reading failure. During the 2015-16 school year, Granger implemented Lindamood-Bell® instruction to address the specific needs of this student population. Nineteen students received an average of 67 hours of Seeing Stars instruction to develop symbol imagery for reading. Instruction was delivered by Granger teachers who received professional development in the Lindamood-Bell programs. Student gains were measured with two reading assessments.

 

Results
On average, Seeing Stars students achieved significant improvements in reading. They made large standard score changes on both measures. Additionally, the 31-point percentile increase in word recognition put these students within the normal range (25th-75th percentile). Their pre- to posttest results were statistically significant on both measures. The results of this study illustrate that Lindamood-Bell instruction in the Seeing Stars program leads to improved reading, which is essential to achieving success with school curricula.
