Research Project Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of a Direct Instruction (DI) Flashcard program on a five-year-old student to increase sight word identification in a home setting. The researcher used event recording within a changing criterion design to measure correctly read Kindergarten Sight Words. For intervention, the participant was shown a deck of sight word flashcards. For each correctly read word, that card was placed in the back of the deck. For each incorrectly read word, that word was corrected with the researcher guiding the participant through a model, test, retest correction procedure. Then that card was placed about four cards back in the deck and reviewed multiple times. The results showed that the participant successfully learned 60 sight words. The DI Flashcard procedure was easy to implement and was very cost effective for an in-home intervention to teach sight word reading.
