Campbell, M.L., Helf, S., & Cooke, N.L. (2008). Effects of adding multisensory components to a supplemental reading program on the decoding skills of treatment resisters. Education and Treatment of Children, 31(3), 267-295. This article examines the use of a supplementary multisensory program on a small group of students labeled as treatment resisters.

Joshi, Dahlgre, and Boulware-Gooden state these findings along with the factors that influenced them (2002). This article’s source of authority is the peer-review process, which also makes it a scholarly resource. Scheffel, D.L., Shaw, J.C., & Shaw, R. (2008). The efficacy of a supplemental multisensory reading program for first-grade students. Reading Improvement, 45(3), 139-152.
