Early Phonological Awareness and Reading Skills in Children with Down Syndrome.
Kennedy, Esther J.; Flynn, Mark C.
Down Syndrome Research and Practice, v8 n3 p100-09 Aug 2003
A battery of various tasks was used with nine children with Down syndrome (ages 5 to 8) to assess their phonological awareness and basic reading skills. Results suggest that children with Down syndrome are at risk for reading acquisition difficulties due to reduced phonological awareness skills and that these deficits are in addition to delays caused by reduced cognitive skills.
