11.3 Phonological Proficiency Intervention Continuum

Learning Intentions

After viewing this module session participants will be able to: 

  • Describe the phonological proficiency intervention continuum
  • Explain why the degree of phonology incorporated into intervention affects outcomes for word-level reading


Watch the session below. 

*Please see the Transcripts resource folder located in Module 0 for a text copy of the transcript from this video. 


  • Alphabetic writing involves phoneme-based characters
  • The well-established theories of orthographic learning highlight the centrality of phonemic processing for word memory
  • There is a wide range of standard score point outcomes in word-reading intervention research
  • There appears to be a direct relationship between phonemic training and outcomes
  • The more advanced the phonemic training, the better the reading outcome

Reflect & Connect

Do what degree have you incorporated phonemic training into remedial reading lessons? How may your practice change based upon this session?
