A STUDY OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF TRAINING FOR RETARDED READERS IN THE AUDITORY PERCEPTUAL SKILLS UNDERLYING READING.
DEUTSCH, CYNTHIA P.; FELDMANN, SHIRLEY
TWO STUDIES WERE CONDUCTED TO EXPLORE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE AUDITORY SKILLS OF SOCIALLY DISADVANTAGED STUDENTS AND READING ACHIEVEMENT. THE EFFECT OF A DEVELOPMENTAL AUDITORY TRAINING PROGRAM ON READING ACHIEVEMENT AND THE EFFECTIVENESS OF DIFFERENT EVALUATIVE PROCEDURES FOR AUDITORY PERCEPTUAL SKILLS WERE ALSO TESTED. SIXTY-FOUR THIRD-GRADE NEGRO AND PUERTO RICAN CHILDREN WHO WERE RETARDED READERS WERE CHOSEN AS SUBJECTS. THREE TREATMENT GROUPS AND ONE CONTROL GROUP WERE SET UP. THE THREE TREATMENT GROUPS RECEIVED VARYING COMBINATIONS OF AUDITORY AND READING TRAINING. THERE WERE 50 TREATMENT SESSIONS. TESTS WERE ADMINISTERED PRIOR TO THE TREATMENT, IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE TREATMENT, AFTER 6 MONTHS, AND AFTER A YEAR. RELIABILITY COEFFICIENTS, ANALYSIS OF COVARIANCE, INTERCORRELATIONS, AND T TESTS WERE USED TO ANALYZE THE DATA. NO TREATMENT GROUP FACILITATED READING ACHIEVEMENT. THERE WERE NO GROUP DIFFERENCES. NONE OF THE VARIOUS COMBINATIONS OF READING AND AUDITORY PROGRAMS SEEMED TO AFFECT IMPROVEMENT IN READING. IT WAS SUGGESTED THAT THERE MIGHT BE INTERRELATIONSHIPS OF TEACHER AND PUPIL VARIABLES IMPORTANT IN READING LEARNING. STAFF EVALUATIONS, REFERENCES, ADDITIONAL RESULTS, TABLES, DESCRIPTIONS OF TESTS, AND APPENDIXES ARE INCLUDED. (BK)
