Abstract: This study assessed the effects of McGraw Hill Phonemic Awareness on the phonemic awareness skills of 5 preschool children with developmental delays. The children received 60 of the 110 lessons included in this program over 5 months. They were pre- and posttested using the kindergarten level Initial Sound Fluency and Phoneme Segmentation Fluency subtests of the Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS) . Results showed average increases of 16.6 initial sounds per minute and 27 phonemes per minute. Implications for future research are discussed.
