Early Intervention in Reading: A Case Study of a 4Ps Beneficiary
Abstract: This case study was focused on probing the onset of early reading difficulties of a beneficiary of the social amelioration program of the Philippine government through issuance of monthly cash assistance to Filipino poor families. An intervention program plan was tailored to immediately arrest the arising reading difficulties that the learner is exhibiting. Using eleven kinds of pre-reading assessment tools, the reading difficulties of the child was clearly diagnosed. His lack of phonemic awareness or knowledge impedes his learning to read in his First Language (L1-Filipino) of which he is orally fluent and competent. To expedite his recovery in learning to read in his L1, the Marungko Lessons were used with additional consonant clusters lessons, then further reinforced by writing activities. The intervention program tailored according to his needs pole vaulted him from being a child-at-risk to an independent reader. Pre-assessment, during assessment, and post assessment tools documented the tremendous progress happened to the child. The intervention program was incredibly successful in addressing the early reading difficulties of the child.
