'Decoding, Reading, and Reading Disability' Philip B. Gough and William E. Tunmer

Postby Debbie_Hepplewhite » Thu Aug 31, 2017 11:49 pm

Sir Jim Rose recommended the Simple View of Reading model (Gough and Tunmer, 1986) as a 'useful conceptual framework' in his Independent Review of the Teaching of Early Reading Final Report (March 2006).

The Simple View of Reading model replaced the 'Searchlights' multi-cueing reading strategies in England as a consequence of the Rose Review.

This paper by Gough and Tunmer is important reading for teachers:

Decoding, Reading, and Reading Disability

Philip B. Gough and William E. Tunmer

To clarify the role of decoding in reading and reading disability, a simple model of reading is proposed, which holds that reading equals the product of decoding and comprehension. It follows that there must be three types of reading disability, resulting from an inability to decode, an inability to comprehend, or both. It is argued that the first is dyslexia, the second hyperlexia, and the third common, or garden variety, reading disability.
