Phonological Awareness Screening to Identify At-Risk Readers: Implications for Practitioners

, : Phonological Awareness Screening to Identify At-Risk Readers: Implications for Practitioners. Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools 29(2): 109-116

NlmCategory="UNASSIGNED">The purpose of this study was to investigate informal phonological awareness measures as predictors of first-grade broad reading ability. Subjects were 91 former Head Start students who were administered standardized assessments of cognitive ability and receptive vocabulary, and informal phonological awareness measures during kindergarten and early first grade. Regression analyses indicated that three phonological awareness tasks, Invented Spelling, Categorization, and Blending, were the most predictive of standardized reading measures obtained at the end of first grade. Discriminant analyses indicated that these three phonological awareness tasks correctly identified at-risk students with 92% accuracy. Clinical use of a cutoff score for these measures is suggested, along with general intervention guidelines for practicing clinicians.

Release of 14CO2 during metabolism of [1-14C]glycolate was studied in purified, intact and Triton X-100-solublized peroxisomes isolated from leaves of Secale cereale. Decarboxylation, apparently resulting from H2O2 attack on glyoxylate, was stimul...
