Potential Issues for Dyslexic Students Being Taught using a Validated SSP Programme in KS1

This lecture, presented by Dr Grace Elliott and Emma Haatnell-Baker, will focus on issues relating to the development of phonemic awareness and single word decoding and encoding skills when a DfE validated SSP programme is used to teach phonics in KS1.

Cognitive scientists have shown beyond doubt that fluent, accurate decoding is a hallmark of skilled reading. Automatic word recognition, which is dependent on phonic knowledge, allows the reader to attend to meaning. Slow decoding overloads short-term memory and impedes comprehension.
