"LD Efficient" Instruction in Phonics: Applying Sound Learning Principles to Remedial Teaching. Addendum: Field Replication: "LD Efficient" Phonics Procedures. Technical Report # 1.
Bryant, N. Dale; And Others
The study involving 36 learning disabled elementary students investigated a data based model of remedial phonics instruction which incorporated such principles as providing focus, teaching for mastery, distributing practice, training for discrimination, and emphasizing strategies for transfer. Ss, drawn from special education classes or clinics, were taught for nine 30 minute periods over 3 weeks. Posttest performances indicated that these children were able to learn over 75% of the words taught, to apply the vowel sounds taught to over 60% of the novel words presented, and to read 60% of the training and transfer words presented within the context of sentences. Results confirmed the importance of the application of learning principles to phonics instruction for a disabled population. (Author/SB)
