Remembering in Signs. Early exposure to a natural language, be it spoken or signed, is associated with better knowledge of grammar and syntax (Mayberry, 1993), executive functioning (Figueras et al., 2008; Hauser et al., 2008a), and meta-linguistic awareness (Prinz and Strong, 1998); all of these in turn appear to foster better reading comprehension (Chamberlain and Mayberry, 2000; Padden and Ramsey, 2000; Goldin Meadow and Mayberry, 2001). For example. Error bars represent the SE of the mean. Critically, the transparency of the orthographic-to-phonological mapping was systematically manipulated in order to assess how much a purely orthographic strategy was being used to perform a phonological task. The odd-man-out could be located either at the first consonant or at the vowel. Bull. Read the following passage to the student at a slightly slower than usual rate. This score could be linked with single word processing and identification, but without access to more detailed statistics on the participants’ reading habits it is also possible that the shallow phonological score reflects exposure to print, being in a sense an indirect measure of reading skill. To better understand the main determinants of reading comprehension in each population, each group was considered separately. 39, 178–185. On the use of the recall task to measure L2 reading comprehension. J. Boutla, M., Supalla, T., Newport, L., and Bavelier, D. (2004). State Government of Victoria, Australia © 2019. 23, 459–476. People often think that reading begins with learning to sound out letters. J. For example, belt was the correct answer in the belt/doll/door triplet (top left). Brain 132, 1928–1940. Biol. Deaf Educ. Relations among speech, language, and reading disorders. These also have a phonological structure (MacSweeney et al., 2008) that can support higher cognitive processes (Aparicio et al., 2007; MacSweeney et al., 2009; Morford et al., 2011). Results found that, by May, 71.8% of students had attained full letter naming knowledge. The demonstration of short-term consolidation. doi: 10.1037/0012-1649.30.1.73, Wagner, R. K., Torgesen, J.

The neural basis of lexicon and grammar in first and second language: the declarative procedural model. If participants wore CIs or hearing aids, they were instructed to use them as they normally would during all tasks. There are five assessment tasks in Part 1. doi: 10.1016/0010-0277(74)90015-8, Bhatarah, P., Ward, G., Smith, J., and Hayes, L. (2009). No participants reported having any learning disorder. J. Psychol. This study compared determinants of reading in two distinct deaf populations with marked differences in language experience. J. Mem. phonological awareness. Analyses of the primacy and recency effects also revealed no main effects of group: primacy, t(45) = 1.07, d = 0.32, p = 0.29, and recency, t(45) = 0.59, d = 0.18, p = 0.55 (Figure 6)3. Phonological knowledge is a foundational aspect of learning to spell as young students develop an awareness of the concepts of letters and sounds. Markwardt, F. C. (1989). Interestingly, the group × free recall primacy interaction was the only significant interaction term: F(1,35) = 11.59, p = 0.002 [Model 2: adjusted R2 = 0.48; F(9,35) = 5.51, p < 0.001]. A few studies have directly compared short-term memory capacity in deaf and hearing individuals. Executive function and language in deaf children. Child Psychol. Articulation rate, naming speed, verbal short-term memory, and phonological awareness: longitudinal predictors of early reading development? Austin, TX: PRO-ED. Psychol. 73, 121–134. The assessment includes four interrelated parts: In this assessment students demonstrate their ability to recognise and express simple rhyming units. We would also like to thank P. Clark, B. McDonald, and A. Hauser for their invaluable interpreting services. 1145, 83–99. doi: 10.1177/0956797611435130, Bélanger, N. N., Mayberry, R. I., and Rayner, K. (2013). The location of the odd man out was counterbalanced within a participant, but was placed at the top in each example above for clarity. doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2004.10.019, Elbro, C., Nielsen, I., and Petersen, D. K. (1994). (2004).
