A Psycholinguistic Analysis of Oral Reading Errors of Children with Learning Disabilities.
Mitchell, Carol
Oral reading errors of 10 learning disabled children (9-11 years old) were examined in order to describe the type of errors, the use of graphic, syntactic, and semantic information, and the implementation of correction strategies. Tape recordings were made of individual oral reading sessions, and errors were classified according to substitution, omission, insertion, reversal, and complex combination. Results indicated that Ss used graphic, syntactic, and semantic information for reading in a manner consistent with previous research findings on children with no reading difficulties. Findings suggested the possibility of using analysis of oral reading errors as a diagnostic tool for learning disabled students. (CL)
