Abstract:

The purpose of this research was to develop and evaluate a set of training systems for developing critical skill components of reading. The critical skills that are the focus of training have been shown in prior research to represent particular sources of processing difficulty for secondary school students who have poor reading skills. While the initial motivation for developing component-specific training systems was a desire to investigate experimentally the interactions among component processes of reading, a second and equally important goal was to determine if a hierarchical training model, in which particular reading components are developed sequentially, is an effective way to build reading skills for this target population.
