Beginning Reading and Phonological Awareness for Students with Learning Disabilities. ERIC Digest #E540.
ERIC Clearinghouse on Disabilities and Gifted Education, Reston, VA.
This digest provides basic information on phonological awareness in the process of learning to read for students with learning disabilities. It considers how phonological awareness fits into this process and the special problems experienced by children with learning disabilities or from culturally diverse backgrounds. Suggestions for teaching phonological awareness focus on characteristics of a word which make it easier or more difficult to read. The importance of direct instructional support and modeling the correct sounds is also stressed. (DB)
