Step 3 Starter: Overview for Professionals
What is Step 3 Starter?
Step 3 Starter replaces Steps 1-3 and was created for children 7 years and over, with established letter-sound knowledge, who are still unable to make appropriate gains.
The intention of Step 3 Starter is to:
- review/build phonemic awareness
- teach needed to support working memory or fluency challenges
- build fluency at a CVC level
- proceed as quickly as possible to Step 4
Activities involving learning letters and sounds (Easy Alphabet) are not included.
