Computer-Based Phonological Skills Training for Primary Students with Mild to Moderate Dyslexia--A Pilot Study
ARTICLE

AJEDP Volume 6, ISSN 1446-5442

Abstract

This pilot study investigated the efficacy of "Phonics Alive 2: The Sound Blender", a computer-based phonological skills training program, delivered with both at-home and at-school components over a 10-week period, as a potential treatment of phonological dyslexia. Participants were 20 dyslexic primary students with an average delay of 13 months on a word reading task; 11 months on a reading comprehension task, and 25 months on a pseudoword decoding task. Results indicated significant main and interaction effects for the treatment group, particularly on reading comprehension and pseudoword decoding measures. Discussion of results includes the potential advantages of computer-based treatment programs which involve the home and the school in cooperative ways. (Contains 1 table, 8 figures, and 1 footnote.)
