Color Words Syllable Division is a systematic approach to reading the vocabulary words in Workshop 2 of Read 180 ( Tsunami: Disaster of the Century). I have successfully used this system with Dyslexic and Learning Disabled readers. They respond to the color coding because it draws attention to the main structures in a hard word (vowels, prefixes, and suffixes) which become chunks or sound units instead of letters to be decoded separately. This de-mystifies the reading process. It brings order to the dyslexic's chaos.
