Analysis of Difficulties in Understanding and Applying the Alphabetic Principle
Nieto, Jose Escoriza
Electronic Journal of Research in Educational Psychology, v2 n2 p75-103 Oct 2004
The aim of this study is to analyze general, conceptual problem issues in explaining specific learning disabilities in written language. Though some authors feel that a certain degree of consensus has been reached, in some specific issues there continue to be severe discrepancies about the conceptualization of learning disabilities in learning to read and in the reading process itself. An ongoing climate of controversy is foreseen, which can only be ended or alleviated by research and critical reflection. The basic issue, drawn from the current dyslexia panorama, is not only explanatory, but extends logically to the procedures used to evaluate the seriousness of the problem and to help students with learning disabilities to encourage internalization of written language as a psychological instrument. (Contains 4 tables.)
