Intensiv avkodningsträning i år 2: En interventionsstudie med Rydaholmsmetoden
Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
This intervention study examines the effects that an intensive training period, with structured exercise of grapheme phoneme awareness, can have on students with word-decoding difficulties, and more precisely whether the intervention enables them to meet the Swedish curriculum standards. Information has been collected via an intervention with five students having word-decoding difficulties in grade 2. The intervention method applied follows Rydaholmsmetoden, which is a material with textured word-decoding training. The results of the five students in the intervention group were compared with a control group. The study implies that an intervention with structured and intensive word-decoding training for five weeks leads to increased results both in terms of word-decoding speed and accuracy. The test results show that the word-decoding speed and accuracy increased for less complex words, 2-4 characters. For more complex words the results does not show enough progress in terms of reaching particular goals for students in grade 2. An effect of the improved results through the intervention is improved confidence among participants, which probably can motivate them to further reading in different contexts.
