Turunen, Tiina; Kiuru, Noona; Poskiparta, Elisa; Niemi, Pekka; Nurmi, Jari-Erik – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2019
School bullying is associated with externalizing and internalizing problems, but little is known about whether reading difficulties also play a part. We asked how, in Grades 1 and 2, word reading skills and externalizing/internalizing problems predict the degree to which students are involved in bullying in Grade 3. Using a sample of 480 Finnish…

Bar-Kochva, Irit; Nevo, Einat – Journal of Research in Reading, 2019
Phonological awareness has been found to be strongly related to spelling.

This study set out to examine these relations in spelling and reading of Hebrew. Children attending the regular educational system…

In a within-subjects experiment, we manipulated the type of scaffolding given to beginning readers to evoke mental marking. We pretested to sort 103 kindergarten and first-grade participants into sequential decoders, who decode…

Kim, Young-Suk Grace; Piper, Benjamin – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2019
The linguistic interdependence hypothesis (Cummins, 1979, 2000) states that children's second-language (L2) proficiency is, to some extent, a function of their first-language (L1) competence. Previous studies have examined this hypothesis with focus on a unidirectional relation from L1 to L2. In the present study, we examined…

Hendricks, Alison Eisel; Adlof, Suzanne M.; Alonzo, Crystle N.; Fox, Annie B.; Hogan, Tiffany P. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2019
Purpose: The aim of this study was to determine whether parents of children with developmental language disorder (DLD) were aware of their children's language difficulties and whether a brief, classroom-based language screen can reliably identify children at risk for DLD, including those with both good and poor word reading skills. Method: First-…

Pilgrim, Jodi; Vasinda, Sheri; Bledsoe, Christie; Martinez, Elda E. – Reading Horizons, 2018
Reading online text presents unique challenges for elementary students as they develop and extend fundamental literacy skills to various media. Traditional assessments of concepts about print inspired the authors' research, which applies a similar approach to address "screen handling" instead of book handling. The purpose of their…

The aim of the study is to evaluate the reading and spelling skills of Finnish children in grades 1 and 2 receiving part-time special education from special education teachers…
