Spelling in Written Stories by School-Age Children with Cochlear Implants
Straley, Sara G.; Werfel, Krystal L.; Hendricks, Alison Eisel
Deafness & Education International, v18 n2 p67-70 2016
This study evaluated the spelling of 3rd to 6th grade children with cochlear implants in written stories. Spelling was analysed using traditional correct/incorrect scoring as well as the Spelling Sensitivity Score, which provides linguistic information about spelling attempts. Children with cochlear implants spelled 86 per cent of words in stories correctly. SSS scores indicated that children on average represented all elements in words with logical letters but not always the conventional spelling. Spelling performance in stories was positively correlated with spelling in single-word contexts. Clinical and research implications are discussed.
