Orthographic spelling is a major difficulty in German-speaking children with dyslexia. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effectiveness of an orthographic spelling training in spelling-disabled students (grade 5 and 6). In study 1, ten children (treatment group) received 15 individually administered weekly intervention sessions (60 min each). A control group (n = 4) did not receive any intervention. In study 2, orthographic spelling training was provided to a larger sample… Expand
Spelling in Adolescents With Dyslexia
The results indicated that higher-education students with dyslexia made on average twice as many spelling errors as the controls, with effect sizes of d ≥ 2. Expand

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
Effectiveness of spelling interventions for learners with dyslexia: A meta-analysis and systematic review
Abstract This systematic review and meta-analysis investigated the efficacy of spelling interventions for the remediation of dyslexia and spelling deficits. Theoretically important moderators, suchExpand
Speech-language pathology program for reading comprehension and orthography: effects on the spelling of dyslexic individuals.
The proposed Speech-language Pathology Program for Reading Comprehension and Orthography produced positive effects on the reading comprehension, spelling, and motivation to reading and writing of the participants. Expand
Exploring the efficacy of a dynamic assessment procedure of spelling in children with dyslexia
This thesis seeks to link the theory of assessment with the practice of dyslexia specialists in the UK. The studies outline the development of an alternative approach to the assessment of spelling inExpand
Distinct patterns of brain function in children with isolated spelling impairment: New insights
This study revealed that children with isolated spelling impairment exhibit a stronger right hemispheric activation compared to children with reading and spelling difficulties and controls, when engaged in an orthographic decision task, presumably reflecting a highly efficient serial grapheme-phoneme decoding compensation strategy.

Effect of Cognitive Strategies on Enhancing Phonemic Awareness of Children with Dyslexia
Children with dyslexia experience a range of problems that are associated with literacy and sometimes numeracy. Such difficulties permeate their learning, and some students leave school with minimalExpand

Does spelling instruction make students better spellers, readers, and writers? A meta-analytic review
Despite the importance of spelling for both writing and reading, there is considerable disagreement regarding how spelling skills are best acquired. During this and virtually all of the last century,Expand


Spelling errors in adults with a form of familial dyslexia.
The main finding of interest was a significant group X dimension interaction effect at the complex level, which indicated that the dyslexics had a qualitatively different profile across the 2 dimensions than either normal group who had parallel profiles. Expand
A computerized treatment of dyslexia: benefits from treating lexico-phonological processing problems.
The present study examined the reliability of the effects of the treatment, and provided an evaluation of the attained levels of reading and spelling by relating them to normal levels. Expand
Spelling in Children With Dyslexia: Analyses From the Treiman-Bourassa Early Spelling Test
Overall, the spelling performance of children with dyslexia appears to be quite similar to that of normally progressing younger children. Expand
Development of phonological and orthographic skill: a 2-year longitudinal study of dyslexic children.
Although the dyslexic children made significant gains over 2 years in overall word identification skill and in aspects of phonological and orthographic processing, they failed to show significant "catch-up" in any component skills relative to age- and reading-level-matched normal readers. Expand
The impact of orthographic consistency on dyslexia: A German-English comparison
The results supported both hypotheses: on a task challenging phonological processing skills (spoonerisms) both English and German dyslexics were significantly impaired compared to their age and reading age controls, however, there were extremely large differences in reading performance when English andGerman dyslexic children were compared.

Long-term effects of a psycholinguistic treatment for dyslexia
Short and long-term effects of a treatment for dyslexia are evaluated. The treatment is based on psycholinguistic theory and assumes that dyslexia is due to poor lexico-phonological processing ofExpand
Component Spelling Skills of College Students with Childhood Diagnoses of Dyslexia
This article examines the component spelling skills of adults with childhood diagnoses of dyslexia in an effort to identify some of the basic impairments associated with their spelling problems andExpand

Spelling matched pairs had very similar scores for word recognition and orthographic coding, but the SD group exhibited significant deficits in reading measures of phonological decoding and in language measures ofphonological awareness. Expand
Characteristics of developmental dyslexia in a regular writing system
The present study assessed reading difficulties and cognitive impairments of German-speaking dyslexic children at grade levels 2, 3, and 4. It was found that German dyslexic children suffered from aExpand
How do the spellings of children with dyslexia compare with those of nondyslexic children?
Children with dyslexia are believed to have very poor phonological skills for which they compensate, to some extent, through relatively well-developed knowledge of letter patterns. We tested thisExpand
