Fast and Slow Namers: Benefits of Segmentation and Whole Word Training.
Levy, Betty Ann; Bourassa, Derrick C.; Horn, Christopher
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v73 n2 p115-38 Jun 1999
Trained fast- and slow-namer groups of poor-reading second graders to read words using different training regimes. Found that slow namers were particularly disadvantaged compared to fast namers when trained with word-level units. Children showed poorer retention following onset/rime training compared to other types. They showed the best generalization following phoneme training and the worst following whole-word training.
