From the Conclusion of “An Independent Evaluation of CRISKids™ For Schools”:
The independentnt evaluation of CRISKids for Schools demonstrated that students with print disabilities possess the cognitive abilities and background knowledge to grapple with the ideas presented in complex texts but are unable to fully engage in classroom conversations simply because of the media – print – in which these ideas are presented. CRISKids enables students to
