Dyslexia and the Phono-Graphix reading programme, MARGARET WRIGHT and FIONA MULLAN, Support for Learning, Volume 21, Number 2, 2006

ABSTRACT: The study reported here set out to investigate the effectiveness of the Phono-Graphix™ reading programme with ten learners, aged 9-11 years, assessed as having specific learning difficulties/dyslexia. Testing was carried out via initial and final analysis of the students’ phonological processing skills and reading/spelling ability over an 8-month intervention period. The students were instructed on a one-to-one basis and each received an average of 24.3 hours of instruction. Findings suggest that the Phono-Graphix programme did appear to help improve students’ phonological processing skills. They further show that a majority of the students recorded an average gain in reading age of 21 months and an average gain in spelling age of 12 months at the end of the training period. Qualitative findings from the study also show overall positive perceptions of the Phono-Graphix intervention among the parents and class teachers involved. The study reported here adds to the sum of knowledge on UK trials of the Phono-Graphix approach and makes a useful contribution to the literature on remediation strategies for dyslexic students. Key words: dyslexia, literacy, Phono-Graphix , phonological processing, synthetic phonics, remediation strategies in reading.
