The teachers claim that they provide the students with varying opportunities to practice different kinds of reading. Homework is used almost daily. The teachers in special education are working closely with the class teachers and extra assistance is quickly provided to students in need. The teachers in special education are working both in the classroom, in small groups and one to one with the students in need of special education. The teachers use tests but also rely on their own ability to find these students. All teachers claim that they use direct feedback to make the students aware of their ability and need of development.
