Since students with Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD) in the area reading often struggle with reading fluency, reading comprehension is often impacted. Through this research, it may be determined that incorporating Words Their Way: Word Study for Phonics, Vocabulary and Spelling Instruction (Bear, Invernizzi, Templeton, & Johnston, 2000) word sorts with the Orton-Gillingham method of reading instruction (Orton & Gillingham, 1930) can increase reading fluency. Does incorporating the program Words Their Way into the Orton-Gillingham method increase fluency? It is hypothesized that incorporating the Words Their Way word sorts into the Orton-Gillingham method will increase reading fluency at the independent reading level for students with learning disabilities. In this study, two second grade students with identified reading disabilities, one boy and one girl, participated in small group instruction, using the Orton-Gillingham Method.
