The Early Manifestation of Developmental Dyslexia: Evidence from German Children.
Wimmer, Heinz
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v8 n2 p171-88 Apr 1996
Examines early difficulties with phonological coding/phonemic segmentation of German children diagnosed dyslexic after four years in school. States that phonics was used since German exhibits straightforward phoneme-grapheme correspondence; however, most students had difficulty with accurate reading of nonwords and unfamiliar words after seven months of reading instruction. Suggests that such difficulties emphasize the phonological impairment account of dyslexia. (PA)
