Reading fluency and reading comprehension in dyslexic learners of English: A Case study of a Dutch learner of English
MetadataShow full item record
This case-study investigated whether there was an effect of prosody training on reading fluency and thereby on reading comprehension for an adult Dutch learner of English with dyslexia. A training was given targeting three different aspects of prosodic phrasing, namely pausing, final lengthening and pitch. Reading comprehension was assessed during two pre-tests and a post-test using cloze tests. Although the participant’s mean scores on these tests improved, the improvement did not reach statistical significance.
