The Investigating of Effectiveness of the Sesfar Intervention Program Aimed Supporting at Phonological Awareness Skills

Deniz AKDAL, Tevhide KARGIN

Abstract


The aim of this study is to investigate the impact of the SESFAR intervention program towards phonological awareness skills on 5-year-old children with weak phonological awareness skills. The study was designed as a random pattern model with pretest-posttest control group from true experimental designs. The content of the intervention program designed for weak phonological awareness skills includes 8 skill areas that support the ability to segmenting words into syllables, syllable blending, rhyming, match the first sound, match the last sound, throw the first sound of words and throw the last sound of words out and  9 activities for each skill, totally 72 activities  and 595 illustrations.SESFAR intervention program was prepared by using modular programming approach and was applied according to direct teaching method steps. Inter-observer reliability and application reliability data were analyzed in the study and high reliability findings were obtained. In the research findings; Mann Whitney U test was used in the comparisons between the groups and it was determined that there was a  statistically significant difference between the posttest scores of the experimental and control groups and thissuggests that the SESFAR intervention program is effective on children with weak phonetic awareness skills.Finally, in this study, suggestions were made to the practitioners during the implementation of the SESFAR intervention program and for further studies.
