Optimal intervention intensity for emergent literacy: What we know and need to learn.
Summary of "Optimal intervention intensity for emergent literacy: What we know and need to learn."
In response to Baker (2012) unpacking critical components of optimal intervention intensity, this article explores what is currently known regarding intervention intensity for emergent literacy for children at risk for delays in this area of development. Studies specifically addressing intervention intensity related to phonological awareness and print knowledge suggest that more intensity does not always yield better results, and other factors suggested by Baker may influence the impact of intensity on children's outcomes. However, none of the research to date includes speech-language pathologists or children with diagnosed language disorders in the intervention models. Future research involving large-scale, systematic focus on intervention intensity in emergent literacy for children at risk for future reading disorders is needed to fully understand this construct within speech-language pathology services.

Nephelometry And Turbidimetry
Chemical analysis based on the phenomenon whereby light, passing through a medium with dispersed particles of a different refractive index from that of the medium, is attenuated in intensity by scattering. In turbidimetry, the intensity of light transmitted through the medium, the unscattered light, is measured. In nephelometry, the intensity of the scattered light is measured, usually, but not necessarily, at right angles to the incident light beam.
General learning, knowledge, and fluency with computer terms; also, becoming familiar with how computers operate and how they are programmed.
CONFORMAL RADIOTHERAPY that combines several intensity-modulated beams to provide improved dose homogeneity and highly conformal dose distributions.
Degree to which individuals have the capacity to obtain, process, and understand basic health information and services needed to make appropriate health decisions.
Background The present study examined home literacy environments, children's interest in reading and emergent literacy skills of pre-school-aged children with Down syndrome (DS; n = 20), school...
BACKGROUND: Low literacy skills are common and associated with a variety of poor health outcomes. This may be particularly important in patients with chronic illnesses such as chronic obstructive pulm...
Abstract This paper aims to report ways of integrating health literacy into occupational therapy practice. Health literacy is defined as the ability to access, understand, evaluate, and communicate in...
Limited health literacy is common in the United States and associates with poor clinical outcomes. Little is known about the effect of health literacy in patients with advanced kidney disease. In this...
Self-care training can reduce hospitalization for heart failure (HF), and more intensive intervention may benefit more vulnerable patients, including those with low literacy.
Consistent adherence to antiretroviral therapy is necessary for treatment success. People with poor health literacy skills experience considerable difficulty adhering to their medications....
Half of US adults have no more than basic reading and numerical skills. A consequence is inadequate health literacy, which is associated with unsatisfactory patient-provider communication...
