Breaking the “Sound” Barrier to Fluent Reading (BSB)

BSB is an intervention to teach students to read and spell well. The spiral-bound books are for students in grades 3 through 12 with reading challenges/dyslexia. They enjoy the multisensory lessons that use their visual/kinesthetic strengths. Even better, the lessons are NOT elementary in nature. Transparencies are also available for those schools that still enjoy the overhead projector. For more information about BSB, read the Overview under the Reading Products tab.
