Research Project invitation
You are invited to take part in a research project.

The Warwick Deaf Children and Literacy Project focuses on children with severe to profound hearing loss. Many of these children have difficulty working with the sounds in language (phonological awareness). We know that phonology is very important when learning to read and write.

However, we don't know as much about their other language skills. For example, it could be that children with weaknesses in sounding out words can use their knowledge of word structure (e.g. that 'boys' contains 'boy' + 's', or that 'electricity' contains 'electric') to help them read. This is known as morphological awareness.

Ultimately, we hope that our research will show whether it would be useful to teach children with weak phonics skills these relationships between words explicitly or to focus on other skills.

We are particularly keen to recruit children with severe to profound hearing impairments aged 7 to 12 years. For more information please contact Dr Helen Breadmore (h.breadmore@warwick.ac.uk) or Rachel England (r.england@warwick.ac.uk).
