Silent Elephant “e” is based on the most current research and best practices for teaching reading, writing, and spelling to dyslexic and non-dyslexic learners.
Research for Silent Elephant “e” is based on, but not exclusive to:
Dr. Sally Shaywitz’s book Overcoming Dyslexia, the first book to present fMRI evidence of brains of dyslexics work differently when reading than non-dyslexic brains
Dr. Samuel T. Orton and Anna Gillingham one-on-one teacher-student instructional model
Patricia C. Lindamood and Phyllis D. Lindamood's Phoneme Sequencing Program for Reading, Spelling and Speech
Louisa Cook Moats' Speech to Print, Language Essentials for Teachers, which exemplifies the power of teaching reading phonetically and teaching the morphology of our language
