EXPERIMENTAL PHONETIC READING PROGRAM FOR EXCEPTIONAL PUPILS.
WARNER, DOLORES
A PROGRAMED SEQUENCE OF INSTRUCTION IN PHONICS FOR EXCEPTIONAL STUDENTS WAS DESIGNED, AND THE PROGRESS OF PUPILS TAUGHT WITH THIS PROGRAM WAS EVALUATED. PUPILS WERE DIVIDED INTO THREE GROUPS--THE EMOTIONALLY DISTURBED, THE NEUROLOGICALLY IMPAIRED, AND THE MENTALLY RETARDED. THE SCORES OF 17 STUDENTS FROM THE LOS ANGELES AREA WERE INCLUDED IN THE ANALYSIS OF THE DATA. THE AGES OF THE PUPILS RANGED FROM 6 TO 14 YEARS. THE PROGRAM WAS CONDUCTED FOR 9 MONTHS, AND THE STUDENTS WERE INSTRUCTED 3 TIMES PER WEEK. THE DEPENDENT VARIABLES WERE THE NUMBER OF CORRECT RESPONSES AND THE RATING OF A BEHAVIOR RATING SCALE. PRETESTS AND POST-TESTS WERE ADMINISTERED. ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE, T TESTS, AND CHI SQUARE WERE USED TO ANALYZE THE DATA. THE EMOTIONALLY DISTURBED AND THE MENTALLY RETARDED PUPILS MADE SIGNIFICANT PROGRESS BETWEEN THE INITIAL AND THE TERMINAL PERFORMANCES IN THE EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM. PUPILS WHOSE AGES WERE BELOW THE MEDIAN OF 8 YEARS MADE MORE SIGNIFICANT PROGRESS IN THE PROGRAM THAN DID PUPILS WHOSE AGES EXCEEDED THE MEDIAN. ADDITIONAL RESULTS, CONCLUSIONS, RECOMMENDATIONS, AND A BIBLIOGRAPHY ARE INCLUDED. (BK)
