A Case Study on the Home-Based Literacy Intervention of Phonemic Awareness for Emergent StudentsWoo, Kil-JooUsing a single baseline across subjects design, this study compared two pre and in school age children, reading experience, and pretest measure, during reading aloud and specific strategies targeted at training phonemic awareness. The training program was “Ladders to Literacy” and the children’s progress was monitored using the Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS). Four measures, Letter Naming Fluency (LNF), Sound Naming Fluency (SNF), Initial Phoneme Ability (IPA), and Phonemic Segmentation Ability (PSA) were used. Results showed that following training, each child’s performance on SNF, IPA, and PSA improved; performance on LNF varied. Conclusion and further research are discussed.
