Ed. Dept. Eyes 'What Works' With Learning Disabilities

The U.S. Department of Education's What Works Clearinghouse site will now feature research about improving academic performance for students with learning disabilities.

The site published its first review on the subject of a program called the Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing, designed to teach students the skills they need to decode words and to identify individual sounds and blends in words. See how the program is rated here.

The What Works Clearinghouse is part of the department's Institute of Education Sciences, and was designed to help educators make decisions about curricula, supplemental products, and classroom methods.
