McCandliss, Bruce; Beck, Isabel L.; Sandak, Rebecca; Perfetti, Charles
Scientific Studies of Reading, v7 n1 p75-104 2003
Examines the reading skills of children who have deficient decoding skills in the years following the first grade and traces their progress across 20 sessions of a decoding skills intervention called Word Building. Presents results in terms of the consequences of not fully engaging in alphabetic decoding during early reading experience, and the self-teaching role of alphabetic decoding for improving word identification, reading comprehension, and phonological awareness skills.
