Do Children Selected for Reading Recovery[R] Exhibit Weaknesses in Phonological Awareness and Rapid Automatic Naming?
Litt, Deborah
Literacy Teaching and Learning, v14 n1-2 p89-102 2010
The purpose of this study was to determine whether children considered to be at high risk for developing reading difficulties due to weaknesses in either phonological awareness or rapid automatic naming (RAN)--two skills linked to reading difficulties in many studies--were being captured for early intervention with Reading Recovery using the standard Reading Recovery screening and selection process. Measures of phonological awareness and RAN were administered to 62 children selected for Reading Recovery in the fall of 2001 within the first 2 weeks of their programs. The results demonstrate that children with notable weaknesses in both phonological awareness and RAN are captured by the standard Reading Recovery selection process. Only one of the 62 children selected for intervention in the fall fell within the normal range (37th percentile or above) in both areas; 71.4% of the children performed at the 16th percentile or lower in phonological awareness, and 50.6% performed at the 16th percentile or lower in rapid naming.
