Sample text

Where next? The question asked at the beginning of this chapter was why children with dyslexia have a phonological deficit. A hypothesis put forward was that for at least a subgroup of this population, auditory perception was a limiting factor. A theoretical framework is put forward in which both initial and later phonological representation development 36 Jennifer Thomson are considered in the etiology of dyslexia, which means a greater consideration of syllabic processing than has hereto occurred.

Such studies have indicated perceptual abilities in infancy previously assumed not possible, and shown that processing limitations attributed to infancy are sometimes an artefact of investigative insensitivity. However, knowing that infants can perceive and distinguish phonological detail at the finest level is not evidence that they are also encoding such detail to long-term phonological representations. This point is well illustrated by Stager and Werker (1997). Using a release-from-habituation task, these researchers found that 14month-old infants failed to discriminate between the minimal pair ‘bih’ and ‘dih’ when presented as referents; however, in an accompanying discrimination task where the syllables were not linked to referential targets, the children succeeded in the task.
