Novel Software Assesses Phonological Awareness
[Source: Science Daily]
Understanding sounds in language is a critical building block for child literacy, yet this skill is often overlooked. Researchers from Michigan State University have developed a new software tool to assess children’s phonological awareness — or, how they process the sound structure of words.
The ATLAS, or Access to Literacy Assessment System, program — the first test of its kind for children with speech and/or language impairment — can help parents, early childhood teachers and paraeducators more accurately measure progress for children with a range of skill levels.
