Effects of Fluency Instruction on Selection-Based and Topography-Based Comprehension Measures
Barnes, Clarissa S.; Rehfeldt, Ruth Anne
Research in Autism Spectrum Disorders, v7 n6 p639-647 Jun 2013
A multiple probe across participants design was used to assess the effects of an intervention package on reading fluency and section-based and topography-based comprehension tasks. Participants were three adolescents diagnosed with high functioning pervasive developmental disorders. The intervention package consisted of listen passage preview, phrase drill error correction, and performance feedback. Reading fluency for all three participants improved following fluency instruction. Topography-based reading comprehension improved over the course of the study for all three participants. Enhanced fluency performance did not generalize to novel passages. (Contains 3 tables and 3 figures.)
