The effects of the Funnix beginning reading program on the reading skills of preschoolers

Parlange, L. A.
Abstract:
This study examines effects of the Direct Instruction computer-based beginning reading program, Funnix, with preschool-aged children. 10 preschoolers received instruction from Funnix, and their beginning reading performance was measured pre- and post-intervention. Results indicate that all preschoolers demonstrated improvement on beginning reading measures, with the largest increases shown on the Word Attack subtest of the Woodcock Johnson and the Expressive Language subtest of the Mullen Scales of Early Learning.
