How perceptual (sensory) motor programs enhance the reading abilities of primary students
This study's research question is, how does a perceptual (sensory) motor program enhance the reading skills of primary students in my district? This study grew out of the researcher's need to find the best ways to meet her learners' reading needs. This research was primarily qualitative, implementing action research principles. Primary teachers in the researcher's district were the participants. This year long study focused on the teachers' use of a perceptual (sensory) motor program (Stimulating Maturity through Accelerated Readiness Training, S.M.A.R.T. Curriculum) with their students and how it enhanced their students' reading skills. Data was collected through the same survey given to teachers in December and May of the same school year, along with end of the school year teacher interviews. Results suggest that the use of a perceptual (sensory) motor program does enhance the reading abilities of primary students.
