SALGADO, Cíntia Alves  and  CAPELLINI, Simone Aparecida. Phonological remediation program in students with developmental dyslexia. Pró-Fono R. Atual. Cient. [online]. 2008, vol.20, n.1, pp. 31-36. ISSN 0104-5687.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-56872008000100006.

BACKGROUND: program for phonological remediation in developmental dyslexia. AIM: to verify the efficacy of a program for phonological remediation in students with developmental dyslexia. Specific goals of this study involved the comparison of the linguistic-cognitive performance of students with developmental dyslexia with that of students considered good readers; to compare the results obtained in pre and post-testing situations of students with dyslexia who were and were not submitted to the program; and to compare the results obtained with the phonological remediation program in students with developmental dyslexia to those obtained in good readers. METHOD: participants of this study were 24 students who were divided as follows: Group I (GI) was divided in two other groups - GIe with 6 students with developmental dyslexia who were submitted to the program; and GIc with 6 students with developmental dyslexia who were not submitted to the program; Group II (GII) was also divided in two other groups - GIIe with 6 good readers who were submitted to the program, and GIIc with 6 good readers who were not submitted to the program. The phonological remediation program (Gonzalez & Rosquete, 2002) was developed in three stages: pre-testing, training and post-testing. RESULTS: results indicate that GI presented a lower performance in phonological skills, reading and writing when compared to GII in the pre-testing situation. However, GIe presented a similar performance to that of GII in the post-testing situation, indicating the effectiveness of the phonological remediation program in students with developmental dyslexia. CONCLUSION: this study made evident the effectiveness of the phonological remediation program in students with developmental dyslexia.
