Abstract


   The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of  response-to-intervention model on developing acquisition of letter naming knowledge and spelling knowledge  among kindergarten children  identified as at risk for the acquisition of beginning reading. Thirty- six kindergarten children  identified as at risk for the acquisition of beginning reading participated in this study. Children were administered a pre- reading skills test ( developed by Mourad Ali, 2014 to screen for children who are at risk for the acquisition of beginning reading) . Children who had  low achievement scores on the test (( at least 1.5 standard deviations [SD] below the population mean) were included. Letter Naming Knowledge  Test and Spelling Knowledge Test were employed. In order to analyze the data from the pre- and post-test, the author used ,making use of  the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) V22.0. ANCOVA analysis and t-test results indicated the effectiveness of response-to-intervention model on developing acquisition of letter naming knowledge and spelling knowledge  among kindergarten children  identified as at risk for the acquisition of beginning reading
