I think SFA came from Johns Hopkins - and I think has been bought by someone
else now...a friend of mine worked for SFA in San Francisco for a while and
I haven't heard much about them since she left...

I don't know why you are seeing what you are seeing in those students.
It is hard to say without a history of the child and their education thus
Most of these kids went through the Yale (I think?) Success For All
program, which is scripted and very heavy on the multiple choice type
question. They literally cannot read-- they can't sound anything out and
they can't spell. We are considering going back and doing a whole phonics
program with them to review the sounds of the letters.
This is the first class in this area to have had SFA all the way though
elementary school. UGH
