PCI Reading Program Level 1, 5 Pack of Trace & Read Workbooks

The PCI Reading Program is a research-based curriculum created specifically to teach students with developmental disabilities, autism, and significant learning disabilities to read. Level One teaches 140 sight words and "real-world" words through a comprehensive system of repetition, "hands-on" practice, controlled-vocabulary reading, and high-interest activities. Nonreaders become successful readers word-by-word, reading 28 engaging, full-color books along the way.


The five-step lesson cycle (see pages 6-7) is based on visual discrimination and is designed to teach students to automatically recognize and correctly pronounce one word at a time. As each new word is learned, previous words are continually reviewed, which promotes both short- and long-term retention. For every five words learned, students are invited to read a full-color book about the everyday life of a contemporary adolescent character.


The program is designed for nonreaders age 5 to adult, the activities and books feature realistic illustrations, and the story lines encompass important life skills and lessons. The program materials use repetition and review along with frequent praise to guarantee successful learning and to increase students' self-confidence.


Level One is designed as a one-on-one program that takes at least one full school year to complete. Two additional levels are forthcoming. Level Two will teach an additional 140 words and introduce students to wrapped text and a few common inflectional endings, such as -s and -ing. Level Three will serve as a "bridge" between reading through visual discrimination and reading through basic decoding strategies and word attack skills.
