Can anyone recommend teaching techniques/resources for teaching Freshman in HS who read at a K-2 reading level and have learning disabilities?

My three students read below a 3rd grade level. Two of them cannot identify the correct letters in the alphabet. Two out of the three cannot write without support. They can identify the correct answer but to write it on a worksheet they need me to write it and then they copy it. I have tried a lot and a lot has failed, including vocabulary wordsearches. I need help meeting their needs. Thanks everyone!

      Have you tried using apps on an iPad to reinforce these concepts? I teach k/1 and use technology in this same area to work on ELA with my students.

        Have you tried cooperative learning? There are free, printable activities for secondary ELA at
