Stepping Stones to Literacy is an effective, research-based program for children who have been identified as at risk for reading failure.

Over the course of 25 intensive lessons, students learn the crucial skills necessary for reading fluency and come away with a framework for reading comprehension that can be applied to all content areas.

Geared toward mastery of the pivotal skill sets that contribute to phonemic awareness— listening, letter naming, phonological awareness, and serial processing—Stepping Stones to Literacy uses proven principles of effective instruction to provide help for below-benchmark readers. Now with Spanish prompts, each lesson features explicit instructions for use with small groups or individuals.

Set includes Instructor’s Manual and Lesson Book.
