Subject: Best reading programs?

What key ingredients/strategies should a reading program have to be effective for children with dyslexia and processing problems? And where can we find objective research that supports the use of those ingredients/strategies? How do we know, for example, that a multisensory approach works best?
Each year there are more and more reading programs. All of them claim to be research-based. All claim to be the most effective. Some LD organizations are politically biased toward certain programs, even though other programs share the same strategies. How do we sort it out?

Rather than fill up this page, here's a link to
My Take on Dyslexia
at my website. I teach reading to children using a phonics program, but have found that it's more productive in many cases to have the vision issues addressed first.
