Chen, Aleck Shih-wei – Second Language Research, 2021
This article reports a study examining whether foreign language (FL) word learning can be improved with reduction in cognitive load. Cognitive load theory has received substantial supports in various fields of learning but never in FL word learning. Due to the defined poverty in exposure to the FL, hence deprived cognitive pre-requisites for…

Beach, Kristen D.; Traga Philippakos, Zoi A. – Reading & Writing Quarterly, 2021
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of 42 hr of reading instruction during summer on (a) reading performance of rising second and third graders (n = 39), who were from low-income families and who read below grade level, and (b) the fall reading outcomes between this group and their nonparticipating peers. The intervention was…

Albuquerque, Ana; Martins, Margarida Alves – International Journal of Early Years Education, 2021
There is considerable evidence on the connections between emergent literacy-related skills in preschool-age and successful reading and writing. The purpose of this double-designed experimental/descriptive study was to analyse the impact of invented spelling activities on kindergarten children's spelling performance and to explore adult mediation…

Ok, Min Wook; Haggerty, Natalie; Whaley, Angeline – Reading & Writing Quarterly, 2021
This single case design study examined the effects of video modeling (VM) using an augmented reality iPad application on improving phonics skills of first-grade students who struggle with reading. Results indicated that all students made significant growth in their phonics performance and maintained the intervention gains for 5 weeks following the…

Gonzalez-Gomez, Nayeli; O'Brien, Frances; Harris, Margaret – Developmental Science, 2021
There is evidence showing that both maturational and environmental factors can impact on later language development. On the one hand, preterm birth has been found to increase the risk of deficits in the preschool and school years. Preterm children show poorer auditory discrimination, reading difficulties, poor vocabulary, less complex expressive…

Fourtassi, Abdellah; Regan, Sophie; Frank, Michael C. – Developmental Science, 2021
Cognitive development is often characterized in terms of discontinuities, but these discontinuities can sometimes be apparent rather than actual and can arise from continuous developmental change. To explore this idea, we use as a case study the finding by Stager and Werker (1997) that children's early ability to distinguish similar sounds does…

Cunningham, Anna J.; Burgess, Adrian P.; Witton, Caroline; Talcott, Joel B.; Shapiro, Laura R. – Developmental Science, 2021
We reconcile competing theories of the role of phonological memory in reading development, by uncovering their dynamic relationship during the first 5 years of school. Phonological memory, reading and phoneme awareness were assessed in 780 phonics-educated children at age 4, 5, 6 and 9. Confirmatory factor analyses demonstrated that phonological…

Nebraska Department of Education, 2021
For students to be able to read and comprehend, they must first develop phonological awareness, the ability to recognize and manipulate the segments of sound in words. To develop this ability, students must be able to identify the following: individual sounds (phonemes) in words; print letters of the alphabet; and corresponding sounds for each…

Arciuli, Joanne; Bailey, Benjamin – Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, 2021
Purpose: Children with autism have an increased likelihood of reading difficulties. The reasons for this are numerous and varied, but many children with autism can learn to read when they are provided with evidence-based early reading instruction. Method: Here, we provide an overview of some of the factors that impact early reading development for…

Greiner de Magalhães, Caroline; Mervis, Carolyn B.; Cardoso-Martins, Cláudia – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
We examined the contribution of a major predictor of basic literacy ability--phoneme awareness--to individual differences in two arithmetic computation tasks: a speeded task consisting of simple computation problems (arithmetic fluency) and an untimed, more complex computation task involving multi-digit operands (numerical operations). The…

Davis, Bronwen J.; Evans, Mary Ann – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2021
The overlapping waves model put forth by Robert Siegler emphasizes variability, adaptive choice, and gradual change in children's problem solving. These concepts were applied to emergent reading of an alphabet book with pages of three difficulty levels. Ninety-one kindergartners completed tests of emergent literacy. Twice, about 12 weeks apart,…

Aiken, Heather H.; Bratsch-Hines, Mary; Amendum, Steve; Vernon-Feagans, Lynne – Reading Teacher, 2021
This article describes four key principles from Targeted Reading Instruction (TRI, formerly called Targeted Reading Intervention), an evidence-based early reading intervention and professional development program. Focused on accelerating the growth of students not yet meeting grade-level expectations, one-on-one 15-minute daily TRI lessons engage…

Cho, Jeung-Ryeul – Journal of Research in Reading, 2021
Background: Recent research suggests that diverse types of copying, including pure copying, copying fluency and delayed copying, contributed to children's spelling of Chinese characters and English words but not to word recognition. This study examined the relations of pure copying, copying fluency and delayed copying to beginning word reading and…

Valdois, Sylviane; Reilhac, Caroline; Ginestet, Emilie; Line Bosse, Marie – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2021
A wide share of secondary school children does not reach the expected competence level in reading. These children could benefit from more efficient intervention responses, providing a better understanding of their cognitive weaknesses/deficits. Our aim was to explore the cognitive heterogeneity of a population of poor readers identified from a…

Becker, Robyn; Sylvan, Lesley – Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, 2021
Purpose: The merits of collaboration between teachers and speech-language pathologists have been extensively highlighted in literature on multitiered educational frameworks. Studies also illustrate the link between articulation, phonemic awareness, and, ultimately, reading skills. This article describes the impact of an intervention targeting…
