Peltier, Tiffany K.; Heddy, Benjamin C.; Peltier, Corey – Annals of Dyslexia, 2020
Recently, many states passed laws requiring pre- and in-service teachers to receive professional development in dyslexia awareness. Even though misconceptions regarding dyslexia are widespread, there is a paucity of research on how to effectively remove misconceptions and replace them with accurate knowledge. The purpose of this study was to…

Galliussi, Jessica; Perondi, Luciano; Chia, Giuseppe; Gerbino, Walter; Bernardis, Paolo – Annals of Dyslexia, 2020
Over the last years, several studies have suggested a possible link between dyslexia and deficits in low-level visual processing (e.g., excessive crowding). At the same time, specially designed "dyslexia-friendly" fonts appeared on the market. This class of fonts presents two main features: the particular graphic characteristics of the…

Moojen, Sônia Maria Pallaoro; Gonçalves, Hosana Alves; Bassôa, Ana; Navas, Ana Luiza; de Jou, Graciela; Miguel, Emílio Sánchez – Annals of Dyslexia, 2020
The aim of this study was to investigate (1) whether a sample of highly educated individuals with dyslexia living under optimal personal, educational, cultural, and socioeconomic conditions continues to display core deficits in reading and writing skills during adulthood (extending prior results in Dutch, English, Hebrew, and Spanish to the…

Holopainen, Leena; Hoang, Nhi; Koch, Arno; Kofler, Doris – Annals of Dyslexia, 2020
Previous studies have showed that early problems with word decoding can lead to poor performance in text reading and comprehension and suggest that poor readers often struggle with reading deficits throughout their school years. Therefore, early detection of those children who are at risk for slow reading development and/or who belong to the…

Wong, Richard Kwok-Shing; Russak, Susie – Annals of Dyslexia, 2020
The contribution of teacher knowledge to learning outcomes at the beginning stages of literacy acquisition is of growing concern because the ability to provide quality instruction is central to successful literacy acquisition, particularly for pupils with dyslexia. To date, the majority of research has focused on teachers of English as a first…

Parrila, Rauno; Dudley, Dean; Song, Shuang; Georgiou, George K. – Annals of Dyslexia, 2020
We provide a meta-analytic review of all group-comparison studies that used reading-level match design, were conducted in highly consistent European orthographies, included children with dyslexia younger than 13 years of age as participants, and included measures of one or more of the potential causes of dyslexia. We identified 21 studies meeting…

Krenca, Klaudia; Gottardo, Alexandra; Geva, Esther; Chen, Xi – Annals of Dyslexia, 2020
The purpose of the present study was to examine the predictive value of a dynamic test of English and French lexical specificity on at-risk reading classification in 13 at-risk and 44 not at-risk emerging English (L1)-French (L2) bilingual Grade 1 children (M = 75.87 months, SD = 3.18) enrolled in an early French immersion program in Canada.…

Moura, Octávio; Pereira, Marcelino; Moreno, Joana; Simões, Mário R. – Annals of Dyslexia, 2020
The present study aimed to investigate the double-deficit hypothesis (DDH) in an orthography of intermediate depth. Eighty-five European Portuguese-speaking children with developmental dyslexia, aged 7 to 12, were tested on measures of phonological awareness (PA), naming speed (NS), reading, and spelling. The results indicated that PA and NS were…

McMahan, K. Melissa; Oslund, Eric L.; Odegard, Timothy N. – Annals of Dyslexia, 2019
Addressing the needs of students with dyslexia requires an in-depth knowledge of various components of a multi-dimensional approach to reading intervention, which is supported by an understanding of the structure of the language being taught. The current study explored the association between teacher knowledge of the English language and different…

Bae, Han Suk; Yin, Li; Joshi, R. Malatesha – Annals of Dyslexia, 2019
The purpose of the present study is to explore cross-cultural differences among teachers of English as a Foreign Language (EFL) on the basic language constructs and the impacts on their perceived teaching ability in English-reading instruction. Chinese EFL (n = 73) and Korean EFL (n = 39) teachers were administered the Reading Teacher Knowledge…

Weiser, Beverly; Buss, Carolyn; Sheils, Ashley Parker; Gallegos, Elisa; Murray, L. Robin – Annals of Dyslexia, 2019
While qualitative research has shown great benefits for teachers who receive coaching, there is a paucity of experimental research examining students' academic outcomes after their teachers received ongoing support from a knowledgeable and experienced coach. Thus, a quasi-experimental design investigated the literacy outcomes of 452 students…

Feng, Luxi; Hodges, Tracey S.; Waxman, Hersh C.; Malatesha Joshi, R. – Annals of Dyslexia, 2019
Teacher self-efficacy is critical because it predicts teachers' future behavior and impacts teacher turnover. Most teachers begin their career with moderate to high self-efficacy for teaching, but often experience a sharp decline during the first year of teaching. After the first year, their self-efficacy begins to increase but rarely rises to the…

Teacher's knowledge can influence the act of teaching and affect children's learning outcomes. Linguistic and language knowledge of teachers plays an important role in supporting learners at the beginning to read stage. This study examines the language and linguistic knowledge of teachers of beginning readers in New Zealand, how these teachers…

Al Otaiba, Stephanie; Baker, Kristi; Lan, Patrick; Allor, Jill; Rivas, Brenna; Yovanoff, Paul; Kamata, Akihito – Annals of Dyslexia, 2019
In the USA, many states have adopted response to intervention or multi-tiered systems of supports to provide early intervention. However, there is considerable variability in how states and schools implement RTI. Teachers are responsible for using student data from RTI to inform instructional decisions for students with or at risk for dyslexia, so…
