  Abstract:  We studied the effects of word fluency training on text reading rate in four students diagnosed with intellectual disability, from mild to severe. Prior and after the intervention, participants read three different texts for the age-graded level, to evaluate the effects of training on reading fluency. The independent variable was a fluency training for reading words based on Precision Teaching. During the intervention correct responses and faster rate of responding were reinforced. The results showed a significant improvement in oral text reading for all participants. Word fluency training seemed to be also efficient, requiring a brief intervention to reach important reading goals.
