LEAL, Priscila Reis et al. Multisensory and phonic intervention in reading and writing difficulties: A Case Study. Rev. psicopedag. [online]. 2017, vol.34, n.105, pp. 342-353. ISSN 0103-8486.

The aim of the study was to develop a multisensory intervention program used in the psychopedagogical practice for reading and writing skills. The study was conducted with a 10-year-old male, a student in 3rd grade of Elementary School, who came from a private school in the city of São Paulo, complaining of difficulties in reading and writing. Pre- and post-intervention evaluations were performed with the following instruments: Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC-III); Phonological Awareness by Oral Production; Reading and Writing Assessment Battery (BALE); School Performance Test; Reading Text; Test of Word and Pseudowords Repetition; Thematic Writing. The activities were developed based on a review of the literature to elaborate a proposal of intervention based on scientific evidences. Twenty intervention sessions focused on phonic and multisensory strategies were performed during a period of three months. The results obtained from the comparison of pre-and post-performance indicated that there were improvements in phonological awareness skills, verbal comprehension, reading accuracy and word writing after the intervention period. It is hoped that this work may contribute to clinical and educational psychopedagogical performance, since the development of evidence-based intervention programs can support a more consistent practice that allows to evaluate and identify improved skills after a short period of time.
