Transfer of Grapheme Discrimination from Cued to Traditional Orthography

Abstract

Sixty prereaders were trained to discriminate the graphemes within words by having them assemble the words using only those graphemes that corresponded to the phonemic structure of the words. The children were first trained using orthographies that provided cues emphasizing the graphemic structure; either i.t.a. or one of two cued orthographies retaining the English alphabetic characters. The children then assembled the same words printed in the traditional orthography (t.o.) which provides no graphemic cues. As hypothesized, transfer to t.o. was easier for Ss initially trained with cued orthographies retaining English characters than for Ss trained with i.t.a. In addition, transfer from i.t.a. was facilitated when combined with one of the orthographies retaining English characters.
