Pinto, Giuliana; Tarchi, Christian; Bigozzi, Lucia – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2020
This study presents an original genre awareness intervention for kindergarten children. The efficacy of the intervention was tested on children's awareness in three different genres: narrative, epistolary, and instructions. We hypothesized that the intervention would be effective in improving children's structural knowledge in all three genres.…

Morrison, Julie Q.; Hawkins, Renee O.; Collins, Tai A. – Psychology in the Schools, 2020
The Dyslexia Pilot Project provided funding to school districts to implement a multitiered system of support (MTSS) framework for the prevention, early identification, and early intervention of reading difficulties. This article describes the evaluation of the multiyear Dyslexia Pilot Project for students in kindergarten through Grade 2. The…

Mingo, Maya A.; Bell, Sherry Mee; McCallum, R. Steve; Walpitage, D. Lakmal – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2020
Data from 403 third graders were analyzed to determine relative and combined efficacy of group-administered Curriculum-Based Measures (CBMs) and Teacher Rankings of student reading and math performance taken early in the school year to predict end-of-year achievement scores. Teacher Rankings added to the power of CBMs to predict reading (R2 change…

Sunde, Kristin; Furnes, Bjarte; Lundetrae, Kjersti – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2020
Learning the relationships between letters and sounds is a key component of early literacy development and a central aim during the first year of school. Introducing one new letter a week is the most common approach in many countries, but little is known about how the pace of letter instruction contributes to the development of early literacy…

Kim, Young-Suk G.; Lee, Hansol; Zuilkowski, Stephanie S. – Child Development, 2020
Reading skills are foundational for daily lives, academic achievement, and careers. In this study, we systematically reviewed literacy interventions in low- and middle-income countries, and estimated their effects on children's reading skills using a meta-analytic approach. A total of 67 studies (N = 213,464) from 32 countries found in various…

Galvin, Alexandra; Davis, Georgina; Neumann, Denise; Underwood, Lisa; Peterson, Elizabeth R.; Morton, Susan M. B.; Waldie, Karen E. – International Journal for Research in Learning Disabilities, 2020
A variety of antenatal risk factors have been established as being detrimental to a child's developing language ability. Our aim was to examine the relationship between exposure to cumulative risk (CR), including antenatal maternal, perinatal, and maternal health characteristics, and children's preschool language ability. Analyses were comprised…

Lusby, Sinead; Heinz, Manuela – Irish Educational Studies, 2020
Shared reading, a key component of the home literacy environment, has well documented potential for the development of emergent literacy skills. This study explored shared reading interactions between parents and their young children (aged one to six years) with Down syndrome in Ireland. 191 parents completed an online questionnaire, providing…

Stark, Hannah L.; Eadie, Patricia A.; Snow, Pamela C.; Goldfeld, Sharon R. – Professional Development in Education, 2020
Teachers in the early years of primary school play an important role in supporting students' oral language skills; however, there is evidence to suggest many Australian teachers are not adequately prepared to provide systematic, evidence-based instruction in oral language and early literacy. The aim of this study was to describe the observed and…

The purpose of this conceptual replication study was to investigate the efficacy of an early literacy intervention when it was implemented by special educators in general education classrooms with students in the class participating in the lessons. The study was conducted in 16 schools in three states. Eighty students with severe disabilities…

Bedard, Chloe; Bremer, Emily; Cairney, John – Physical Education and Sport Pedagogy, 2020
Background: The Move 2 Learn (M2L) program is an evidence-based intervention designed to improve movement and pre-literacy skills in children ages 1.5-6 years. Purpose: The objective of the current study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the intervention as delivered by non-experts in a community-based setting. Methods: Staff from four…

O'Leary, Robin; Ehri, Linnea C. – Reading Research Quarterly, 2020
The authors examined whether exposing young students to spellings as they learn proper names would facilitate memory for the spoken names when tested without the spellings present (i.e., orthographic facilitation), whether emergent readers with letter knowledge would show this effect, and whether phonemic segmentation (PS) training would enhance…

McTigue, Erin M.; Solheim, Oddny Judith; Zimmer, Wendi K.; Uppstad, Per Henning – Reading Research Quarterly, 2020
Overall, game-based technology for early reading instruction has not robustly met the learning potentials of young readers. To better understand the effects and limitations of computer-assisted instruction in classrooms, researchers have called for more critical attention to learning theory, methodological selection, and context for learning.…

Thomas, Leiah J. G.; Gerde, Hope K.; Piasta, Shayne B.; Logan, Jessica A. R.; Bailet, Laura L.; Zettler-Greeley, Cynthia M. – Grantee Submission, 2020
Early writing is a foundational skill related to young children's literacy development and later reading and writing achievement. Examining children's early writing skills, particularly for those who have been identified as at-risk for later literacy difficulties, is critical to understanding potential differences in the early writing of these…

Vandermosten, Maaike; Correia, Joao; Vanderauwera, Jolijn; Wouters, Jan; Ghesquière, Pol; Bonte, Milene – Developmental Science, 2020
There is an ongoing debate whether phonological deficits in dyslexics should be attributed to (a) less specified representations of speech sounds, like suggested by studies in young children with a familial risk for dyslexia, or (b) to an impaired access to these phonemic representations, as suggested by studies in adults with dyslexia. These…

Piasta, Shayne B.; Soto Ramirez, Pamela; Farley, Kristin S.; Justice, Laura M.; Park, Somin – Grantee Submission, 2020
Educators' content knowledge is considered a key determinant of classroom practices and thus children's learning. In this study, we examine the nature of associations between early childhood educators' literacy content knowledge and their classroom emergent literacy practices. Specifically, we apply generalized additive modeling to consider three…
