So Mike really provided me with a lot of good articles from many well respected researchers that validated the approach to reading instruction that we now know works. The rules at the Court Schools differ from those at traditional schools; they are more punitive. Multidisciplinary collaboration has distinct advantages for promoting positive change in several areas including enhancing outcomes for troubled youth, supporting appropriate models of service delivery, and using resources effectively.
