Abstract:
The study examined whether subtypes could be identified amongst struggling readers in their 3rd year of primary school, and also investigated whether the effect of a small group reading intervention using both a whole-language and phonics approach was different for identified subtypes. 54 participants were identified as struggling readers using a reading screening test (QUEST), and a further group of 34 chronological-age (CA) controls participated to allow subtype identification. The results support a view that istruggling readers have a core difficulty with phonological decoding, but have not found that I surface and phonological subtypes of struggling readers will respond differently to a generic, group reading intervention.
