Early Language Comprehension Individualized Instruction (ELCII)
ELCII is an intervention designed to improve reading comprehension by developing inference making for all students in kindergarten across a suggested 10-week period. It is a Tier I (MTSS framework) preventative tool intended to supplement core instruction.
ELCII is unique because it does not rely on decoding skills. It includes a series of video-based lessons delivered via an interactive, cloud-based software application and scripted book read-alouds.
In ELCII, Kindergarten students:
- View age-appropriate (20 nonfiction) videos
- Learn key academic vocabulary words
- Respond (by touch screen selections) to inferential questions with scaffolding or feedback
- Receive whole-class optional read-aloud lessons
