The present study aimed to predict responsiveness to a sustained two‐phase reading and spelling intervention with a focus on declarative and procedural learning respectively in 122 second‐grade Dutch children with dyslexia. We related their responsiveness to intervention to precursor measures (phonological awareness, rapid automatized naming ability, letter knowledge, and verbal working memory) and related word and pseudoword reading and spelling outcomes of the sustained intervention to… Expand

Response to Phonics Through Spelling Intervention in Children With Dyslexia
Abstract We examined the response to a phonics through spelling intervention for children with developmental dyslexia in word and pseudoword reading efficiency and word spelling. Furthermore, weExpand
Overcoming Learning Difficulties
We examined the response to a phonics through spelling intervention for children with developmental dyslexia in word and pseudoword reading efficiency and word spelling. Furthermore, we investigatedExpand
Semantics impacts response to phonics through spelling intervention in children with dyslexia.
It is implicates that semantic stimulation could benefit the spelling development of children at risk for or with dyslexia by analyzing their phonological, morphological, and orthographical spelling errors both before and after the intervention. Expand
Research studies on dyslexia: participant inclusion and exclusion criteria
ABSTRACT Dyslexia is a term widely used to describe reading characterised by problems with the fluent and accurate letter or word recognition. Nevertheless, there is no consensus about theExpand
Efficacy of the RtI Model in the Treatment of Reading Learning Disabilities
(1) Background: The response to intervention (RtI) model makes possible the early detection of reading problems and early intervention for students at risk. The purpose of this study is to analyzeExpand
Personality, Behavior Characteristics, and Life Quality Impact of Children with Dyslexia
Several family environment and parenting factors were associated with children’s dyslexia significantly and provided multiple perspectives for early intervention of Dyslexia in children, particularly in family factors and the parenting environment. Expand


Responsiveness to Intervention in Children with Dyslexia.
During the intervention, the children with dyslexia made more progress on GPC, (pseudo)word decoding accuracy and efficiency, and spelling accuracy than the typical reading group, and indirect effects of rapid automatized naming and phoneme deletion on word and pseudoword efficiency and word decoding accuracy via the scores at pretest.

Predictors of Response to Intervention of Word Reading Fluency in Dutch
Investigation of the contribution of rapid digit naming, phonological memory, letter sound naming, and orthographic knowledge to the prediction of responsiveness to a school-based, individual intervention of word reading fluency problems of 122 Dutch second and third graders found none of the measures predicted responsiveness after controlling for the autoregressive effect of initial performance on fluency of wordReading.

Phonological Awareness and Rapid Automatized Naming Predicting Early Development in Reading and Spelling: Results from a Cross-Linguistic Longitudinal Study.
Tests of structural invariance show that models of early literacy development are highly transferable across languages and results demonstrated that RAN was more related to reading than spelling across orthographies, with the opposite pattern shown for PA. Expand
Response to fluency-oriented intervention of Dutch poor readers
Abstract Dysfluency is the major characteristic of dyslexia in languages with a relatively shallow orthography, particularly when unfamiliar words have to be processed. The present study investigatedExpand
Development of word reading fluency and spelling in a consistent orthography: An 8-year follow-up.
In a longitudinal study, development of word reading fluency and spelling were followed for almost 8 years. In a group of 115 students (65 girls, 50 boys) acquiring the phonologically transparentExpand
Predictors of reading and spelling abilities in first and second language learners
This study examined the basic literacy skills and related processes of 1st- through 4th-grade children speaking English as a 1st language (L1) and English as a 2nd language (ESL). The performances ofExpand
Diagnostic profiles of children with developmental dyslexia in a transparent orthography.
In the present study for 108 typical and 122 atypical Dutch readers in second grade, the accuracy and speed of decoding words and pseudowords, as well as the accuracy of spelling words were assessedExpand
First-Grade Cognitive Abilities as Long-Term Predictors of Reading Comprehension and Disability Status
In a sample of 195 first graders selected for poor reading performance, the authors explored four cognitive predictors of later reading comprehension and reading disability (RD) status and found a role for cognitive abilities in identifying, classifying, and instructing students with severe reading problems.

Cognitive Correlates of Inadequate Response to Reading Intervention
The cognitive attributes of Grade 1 students who responded adequately and inadequately to a Tier 2 reading intervention were evaluated and were consistent with a continuum of severity associated with the level of reading skills across the four groups. Expand
An Examination of the Nature of Reading Fluency
The present study attempted to investigate the underlying cognitive and linguistic skills necessary for three different aspects of reading fluency: rate, phrasing, quality of expression. The varianceExpand
