A Psycholinguistic Analysis of the Oral Reading Behavior of Selected Children Identified as Perceptually Handicapped.
Gutknecht, Bruce Arthur
Children with perceptual handicaps are often taught reading in the same manner as children in regular school placements. To present a description of the oral reading of such children, five were selected using the I.T.P.A., the Frostig, and the comments of a neurologist. They each read a story orally, and retold the story, following the reading. A comprehension score was assigned from recordings of the retelling. Miscues were analyzed using the Goodman "Taxonomy of Oral Reading Miscues." The reading of the subjects was little different from the reading of normal children. The range of miscues per hundred words was somewhat higher than for normal children. High percentages of unsuccessful correction attempts in the middle ranges of graphic and phonemic similarity were observed in the reading of two subjects. Syntactic and semantic strategies were used by all subjects. The study suggests: that the classification of the perceptually handicapped be examined, and that reading programs equip the child to use syntactic and semantic strategies along with grapho-phonic Reading strategies.
