PCI Reading Program Level 2

A reading curriculum for students with developmental disabilities, autism, & significant learning disabilities
Item # Product Description Photo Price

PC-2500

The PCI Reading Program is a research-based curriculum created specifically to teach students with developmental disabilities, autism, and significant learning disabilities how to read. Levels One and Two teach 280 sight words and "real-world" nouns and verbs through a comprehensive system of repetition, "hands-on" practice, controlled-vocabulary reading, and high-interest activities. Nonreaders become successful readers word by word, reading 42 engaging, full-color books along the way.

Level One is designed as a one-on-one program and takes at least one full school year to complete. In Level One, students learn 140 of the most basic sight words from the Dolch and Fry lists. Students progress from reading individual words to 8-12 word sentences. Level One includes 28 books, ranging in length from 8 to 12 pages. By the end of Level One, nonreaders will have progressed to approximately a 1.0 reading level.

Level Two is designed as the next step for students who have completed Level One. It teaches 140 additional sight words and "real-world" nouns and verbs, advancing students from a 1.0 reading level to a 2.0-2.5 reading level. While Level Two's focus is still on teaching words through visual discrimination, it also introduces students to wrapped text, common inflectional endings, such as -s, -ing, and -ed, and compound words.

Words Taught in Groups of Ten Level Two uses the same five-step lesson cycle that students became familiar with in Level One, but it teaches the words in groups of ten rather than five. Level Two includes 14 full-color books, one for every ten words learned. Each book features a different adolescent character in a typical everyday setting. Books range in length from 12 to 16 pages and move from one paragraph per page to up to three paragraphs per page.

New Instructional Components A set of 14 reproducible stories is provided to help students review the words they learned in Level One before beginning Level Two. The review stories use all 140 of the Level One words. In addition, Level Two features a new instructional step in the Guided Word Practice lessons called Skill Discovery. The Skill Discovery Lessons Book offers scripted lessons that teach students how to read wrapped text, interpret end punctuation marks, identify and read inflectional endings, and identify and read compound words. Word Strips and specially designed Word Windows are also included to help students practice reading
Words with inflectional endings and compound words.

What's Next? Along with the 140 new words taught, the new skills introduced in Level Two will prepare students for Level Three, which is in development. Level Three will serve as a "bridge" between reading through visual discrimination and reading through basic decoding strategies and word attack skills. PCI is also currently working on a software version of the complete Level One Reading Program. A software version of Level Two will follow.
