Spelling performance of children with developmental verbal dyspraxia

Spelling performance of children with developmental verbal dyspraxia

The ability of 4 children with developmental verbal dyspraxia to imitate, spell, read and copy regular single-syllable words was investigated. The children had more difficulty in spelling and reading these words than a group of children with normal speech who were matched for reading age. Apparently, dyspraxic children are subject to a phonetic spelling deficit which arises because of a difficulty in segmenting words at a speech-sound level.
