Differential Processing Training Program: Acoustic-Linguistic Tasks

Ages: 6-12
Grades: 1-7

Students develop skills for language, reading, and writing with progressive tasks that help them attach meaning to and manipulate letter and sounds in words.

These lessons help students move toward effortless processing of auditory and linguistic information. The lessons individually and as group, teach students to recognize word sounds and to pair those sounds with letter symbols Each one- to two-page activity has a goal and a performance grid for easy measurement, identification of error patterns, and documentation of progress. The lessons are grouped into two skill areas:

Phonemic Manipulation

Children learn that words are made of individual sounds and combinations of these sounds affect the meaning of the word. The tasks focus on listening to the sounds that make up words, differentiating between similar sounding words, and manipulating both the syllables and the phonemes that make up the words. The lessons develop these skills:

  • Rhyming
  • Syllables
  • Phonemic Segmentation
  • Phonemic Deletion
  • Phonemic Substitution
  • Word Awareness
  • Phonemic Isolation
  • Phonemic Blending
  • Phonemic Addition
  • Phonemic Rearrangement

Phonic Manipulation

Children learn to associate letters with sounds and generalize the letter sounds to new words. They practice manipulating letters in words and spelling words. The lessons develop these skills:

  • Letter Recognition
  • Sound Spelling
  • Phonic Substitution
  • Phonic Deletion
  • Word Spelling
  • Rhyming Awareness
  • Sound Naming
  • Phonic Addition
  • Phonic Rearrangement
  • Word Reading
