Example text

Lessons are individual, last for 30 minutes, and usually occur twice a week. Progression within the programme follows Clay’s procedure of consolidating children’s reading strengths with material that can be read with more than 94% accuracy. A second objective is working to overcome confusions and learning new skills with text that can be read with 90 to 94% accuracy. The running record is also used to identify the set of skills to be taught at the next level. A key skill that teachers need to develop is how to choose books at the appropriate level.

We also assessed more general cognitive resources such as speed of processing, sustained and divided attention. We found that the children had very varied profiles (see Chapter 7 for case examples); however, on average, they showed very poor language (vocabulary and grammar) and very poor phoneme awareness skills for their age. In contrast, although they showed a tendency to have problems in attention control, their speed of processing skills were broadly within the normal range. It may have been appropriate simply to have provided these children with a further course of ‘Reading with Phonology’, perhaps delivered more intensively on an individual basis.

In the hope of circumventing reading difficulties in ‘at-risk’ groups, we adapted the approach for delivery by mainstream teachers to whole classes of children in 20 schools (Hatcher, Hulme and Snowling, 2004). Schools were divided into four groups which received different forms of teaching. At the core of all four programmes teachers were taught to deliver a high quality, systematic phonically-based form of reading instruction. However, in three out of four groups, this teaching was supplemented with work on oral phonological awareness.
