We evaluated a teaching strategy designed to improve spelling accuracy in children with learning disabilities. The write-say method provides immediate feedback to dual sensory modalities (i.e., visual and auditory) following the administration of a daily spelling test. Four males and three females (mean age = 11.61 years) with learning disabilities were introduced to the write-say procedure within a multiple-baseline design. Compared to control conditions (i.e., studying words on one's own), experimental procedures significantly enhanced subjects' spelling accuracy in a brief period of time. The write-say procedure was also advocated as a cost-effective method of spelling instruction for small classroom settings.
