SPTBiD is a finely-structured literacy program that provides organized instructions to dyslexics and monitoring of dyslexic students. The program also comes with manipulatives, activities and games to support what students are learning. SPTBiD aims to improve reading comprehension by stressing the importance of a multisensory approach. The method involves breaking students into smaller groups and levels (beginner, intermediate and advance), providing instruction in fundamental subjects such as reading, composition and spelling. The method uses a technique known as “attribute reading” to encourage student participation and employs teaching materials/teaching aid including stories and images, which are culturally responsive, as dyslexics are known to be very visually strong. In other words, SPTBiD uses a dyslexics strengths to overcome their weaknesses. A SPTBiD trained teachers uses teaching modules, repeated reading, and progress monitoring (with weekly progress reports), and this enable to promote fluency skills, improve vocabulary, and strengthen reading comprehension.
SPTBiD also stresses essential skills such as phonemic awareness, sight word recognition, and decoding. Students work in a small group of 5 to 6 students, and the program features innovative learning supports, such as teaching materials or teaching aids that best suited for a particular child or a group of student.
