The Sonday System® – Reading Intervention Solutions for Pre K-12 is scientifically-based multi-sensory language instruction. The focus is direct instruction for struggling readers – Tier 2 (“strategic”), especially Tier 3 (“intensive”) and ESL/ELL. It is:
- · Direct and Explicit
- · Simultaneous and Multi-Sensory
- · Systematic and Cumulative
- · Synthetic and Analytic
- · Diagnostic and Prescriptive
I’m guessing you and your team has seen a lot of descriptors like those above. The Sonday System has distinguished itself for…
(1) Ease of implementation, even for instructors with little or no background in literacy
(2) Effectiveness with students who have not responded to other programs, and
(3) Success at all ages, and notably with Middle- and High School-aged students who are significantly behind grade level
