Computer administered instruction in phonological awareness: Evaluation of the DaisyQuest program

DaisyQuest is a computer program that teaches and provides practice in synthetic and analytic phonological reading skills. Researchers found young children trained on DaisyQuest had significantly greater phonological awareness gains than children without training. Children trained on a more developed version significantly outperformed a matched group on three phonological awareness measures.
