Abstract

This is the preliminary study of a test of phonological awareness which does not require that subjects speak or hear to participate. The test was designed to minimize memory loads, and to measure speeded written naming and segmentation-by-sound. Spelling data can also be collected. Subjects have 45seconds to name items in each of two sets of line drawings. The average frequency of the names varies across these sets. In the third set, subjects must name the items, and also segment the written names into their constituent sounds. This task was administered to disabled and normally-reading adults, with two common tests of phonological awareness. The new test discriminated between the readers as reliably as the benchmark tasks, correlating with each better than they correlated with each other. The new test was then administered to deaf adults, who performed similarly to the disabled (hearing) readers. The data represent the first direct demonstration of phonological abilities in deaf subjects, using a task designed specifically for thatpurpose.
