Paraprofessional-Led Phonological Awareness Training with Youngsters at Risk for Reading and Behavioral Concerns
Lane, Kathleen L.; Fletcher, Todd; Carter, Erik W.; Dejud, Carlos; DeLorenzo, Jennifer
Remedial and Special Education, v28 n5 p266-276 Sep-Oct 2007
This study examined the efficacy of a paraprofessional-led supplemental early intervention for first-grade students with poor early literacy skills and behavioral concerns. The goal was to determine if (a) the relatively brief intervention was effective in improving phonological skills, and (b) improvements in academic skills would be accompanied by behavioral and social improvements. The results indicated that the students in the treatment condition experienced significant, lasting increases in phonological awareness and moderate improvement in word attack skills. However, significant collateral effects on social and behavioral performance were not observed. Limitations and directions for future investigation are offered.
