Summary: The main focus of this article was based on designing a program for non- teachers that could help students with Special Learning Disabilities (SLD). Due to the limited resources and lack of training in the past, Cecil D. Mercer of the Department of Special Education University of Florida; Kenneth U. Campbell of Marion County Schools, Ocala, Florida; M.

Repeated readings were used in each area until the student mastered each respective task.

A pre –test and a post-test curriculum-based assessment (CBA) measurement was used for each reading group to determine each student’s progress an order to determine the interventions to implement and/or rate. Personal Reaction: knowing that this study was done in the early 2000s I have noticed from substituting that these methods have been effective when intervention is assisted.
