Description:

Turbo Start contains the five components of effective reading

instruction identified by research from the National Reading

Panel. Turbo Start addresses each component by:

• Phonemic Awareness – following established procedures

for explicitly teaching the relationships between speech-

sound production and spelling-sound patterns.

• Phonics – providing a systematic approach for single

word decoding.

• Fluency – using research-proven, directed practice in

repeated reading of words, phrases and passages to help

individuals read newly encountered text more fluently.

• Vocabulary – featuring multiple word learning strategies

(definitional, structural, contextual) and explicit teaching

techniques with application in text.

• Reading Comprehension – teaching individuals to

explicitly use and articulate multiple comprehension

strategies in narrative and expository text (i.e.,

cooperative learning, story structure, question generation

and answering, summarization and comprehension

monitoring).

Key Features:

• The Turbo Start program was developed for use as an

off-cycle, drop-in dyslexia program.

• The content of Turbo Start is derived from principles

of evidence-based dyslexia instruction and provides

foundational training in five specific components of

reading intervention.

• Turbo Start provides flexibility in the intervention timeline

to prepare students to enter dyslexia services in a group

setting with fidelity.
