Fluența citirii orale – norme pentru limba română

Fluența citirii orale – norme pentru limba română

Romanian normative data for oral reading fluency

Carolina BODEA-HAȚEGAN, Dorina Anca TALAȘ, Raluca Nicoleta TRIFU

The aim of this study is to establish reading fluency norms for preparatory students, students in first grade and students in second grade. A total of 1056 students in the preparatory class, 1977 first grade students and 1763 second grade students both from the urban and rural areas of different counties of the country were evaluated at the end of the school year using a set of tasks selected from the PEAFC probe. The results offer an overview of the oral reading fluency at the end of the preparatory class, at the end of first grade and at the end of second grade, representative for the Romanian population. Both the reading frequency and the reading errors, the accuracy of reading were recorded. The published norms can be used both by teachers and by language language therapy specialists to identify students at risk to develop learning difficulties and to develop intervention plans according to the particularities of each case.

Causality relationship

Relaţia de cauzalitate reciprocă între conştiinţa fonologică, procesarea fonologică şi învăţarea citirii şi scrierii

The causal relationship between phonological consciousness, phonological processing and reading and writing learning

Oana PREDA, Vasile Radu PREDA

The present study (The reciprocal causality relation marking phonological awareness, phonological processing and the acquisition of reading and writing skills) offers an analysis of the psychological and pedagogical premises in acquiring reading and writing skills on the basis of the results of research studies pertaining to the following: the role of phonological awareness and that of phonological processing in acquiring lexical competence; the hypothesis that there is a reciprocal causality relation between phonological awareness and learning writing skills; dysfunctions in the treatment of linguistic data; the impact that lexical age might have on dyslexic versus regular readers; effective pedagogical actions for learning reading skills. To illustrate the role played by phonological awareness and by phonological processing in fostering the pre-acquisition of the linguistic skills necessary for reading and writing, the case study of a pre-school child and the results of the NEPSY investigation are presented.

Keywords: phonological awareness, phonological processing, linguistic competence, lexical competence, dyslexia, reading and writing.

Writing and reading disorders in children

Tulburările de citire şi scriere la copiii nevăzători

Writing and reading disorders in children with children with visual impairments

Daniela BARTHA

The development of literacy for the visually impaired children constitutes the cornerstone of education. Many researchers noted that there are visually impaired children who might have some difficulties in learning to read and write in Braille. That is why, in this article we will try to describe these difficulties.
First of all, we will try to define and understand the language difficulties, namely dyslexia and dysgraphia. Secondly, we will try to make a short presentation of the Braille system. We will then go on with the analysis of some types of errors which are frequently observed in case of visually impaired children, but we will also discuss some possible stages of correcting them.
Moreover, this article also contains a practical section, in which we will present a case study of a visually impaired girl who studies in the High school for the Visually Impaired Children from Cluj-Napoca. In this case study, we will explain the therapy applied to help her overcome these difficulties.

Keywords: dyslexia, dysgraphia, reading difficulties, writing difficulties, visually impairments.
