The intervention program created for this case study was centered on teaching four middle school students, from an urban, public school in the Midwest. Three of the participating students were identified as students with specific learning disabilities. One student was identified as having a health impairment. The Upper Level Spelling Inventory assessment from the Words Their Way program (Flanigan, Hayes, Templeton, Bear, Invernizzi & Johnston, 2011) and a teacher created spelling test was used as a pretest and posttest. The intervention group met over the course of six weeks, for thirty minutes, twice a week. The students who participated in this study demonstrated a moderate increase in spelling common words with prefixes and suffixes.
