Poor Children Learning to Read Do Not Have Trouble with Auditory Discrimination But Do Have Trouble with Phoneme Recognition
Wallach, Lise; And Others
Journal of Educational Psychology, 69, 1, 36-9, Feb 77
This study confirms the hypothesis that poor children's difficulties with sounds stem not from deficiencies in auditory discrimination but from inadequate skill in phonemic analysis. Almost all of disadvantaged and middle-class kindergarten-age children could readily hear phoneme differences in words. Almost all of the disadvantaged children, but almost none of the middle-class children, did very poorly on tasks involving phonemic analysis of words. (Author/MV)
