Testing Phonological Awareness

Teacher Insights

Phonological awareness is an important indicator of child’s literacy skills which is often overlooked, according to researchers at Michigan State University (MSU). They have developed a software called Access to Literacy Assessment System (ATLAS) which can help parents, early childhood teachers and paraeducators more accurately measure phonological progress for children with a range of skill levels. The software was effective when tested with over 1100 children between the ages of 3 and 7 both with and without speech and language impairments. The software provided free of charge enables children to understand what they know even if they struggle to answer questions verbally. This ensures their skills are accurately assessed, and that they receive the right support to keep them on track to meet literacy milestones.
