              * language structure
              * linguistics
              * process and strategies for decoding, encoding, word recognition, fluency, and comprehension
     
    • Provide multisensory instruction that incorporates the simultaneous use of two or more sensory pathways 
              (auditory, visual, kinesthetic,tactile) during teacher instruction and student practice
