Phonological Awareness Abilities of 6-Year-Old Children with Mild to Moderate Phonological Impairments

Communication Disorders Quarterly, v28 n4 p206-215 2007
Standardized and nonstandardized assessments of phonological awareness skills were administered to two groups of 6-year-old children. Group 1 passed a language screening but exhibited mild or moderate phonological impairments on the "Assessment of Phonological Processes--Revised." Group 2 passed a language screening and exhibited no phonological errors. Results indicated that the children with phonological errors performed significantly more poorly on both the standardized and the nonstandardized tests of phonological awareness. This study provides further evidence that children with relatively mild phonological problems independent of concomitant language disorders should be considered at risk for phonological awareness problems.
