4 MULTI-LINGUISTIC LANGUAGE SYSTEMS AND THEIR DIFFERENT SENSORY INPUT & OUTPUT MODALITIES.

Alternative Research-Based Approach of Defining SLDs

Reading and writing are multi-modal processes that involve sensory inputs of language by eye and by ear (seeing the letters and hearing the phoneme sounds they represent when reading out loud) and motor outputs of language by mouth and by hand (saying the phoneme sounds and writing the letters that represent those phonemes). These multi-modal processes are used to decode and encode language – which itself is not a sensory or motor process – at multiple levels: subword, word, syntax, and text.

Multi-modal literacy instruction= sensory input to the language systems + motor output from the language systems.

Subword = any linguistic unit smaller than a word.
