“Learning to read words: understanding the transition from novice to expert”
June Lloyd Room, Ground Floor |
Wellcome Trust Building, Institute of Child Health
30 Guilford Street | London | WC1N 1EH | United Kingdom
Dr Kate Nation, Professor of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford
Abstract: It is well-established in that the gateway to reading opens when children discover the alphabetic principle – the fundamental insight that in a language like English, letters code for meaning via sound.
We know that phonological skills and letter-sound knowledge underpin this insight, fuelling the development of decoding and so characterising the early stages of learning to read. We also know what needs to be learned beyond this – rich, high quality lexical knowledge so that words are processed effectively in the service of reading comprehension.
This talk will discuss children’s orthographic learning, focusing on what’s required for a reading system to move from one that is heavily reliant on decoding to one that resembles skilled word recognition.
