Analysis of Specific Deficits: Evidence of Transfer in Disabled and Normal Readers Following Oral-Motor Awareness Training.
Benson, Nancy J.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v92 n4 p646-58 Dec 2000
Analyzes training procedures designed to address specific phonological deficits in six- to eight-year old disabled readers (N=24). Children were taught to connect printed letter clusters with underlying oral-motor activity. Posttest results reveal that all children were successful in segments representing trained reading rules, but disabled and young, normal readers were less able to read complete real and nonsense words. (Contains 82 references and 4 tables.) (Author/GCP)
