Analysis of Phonemes, Graphemes, Onset-Rimes, and Words with Braille-Learning Children
Crawford, Shauna; Elliott, Robert T.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v101 n9 p534-544 Sep 2007
Six primary school-aged braille students were taught to name 4 to 10 braille letters as phonemes and another 4 to 10 braille letters as graphemes (Study 1). They were then taught to name 10 braille words as onset-rimes and another 10 braille words as whole words (Study 2). Instruction in phonemes and onset rimes resulted in fewer trials and a higher percentage of correct responses. (Contains 2 tables and 4 figures.)
