‘How we remember words…’ (David Kilpatrick)


Today, 29.12.2020, I listened to a YouTube video post by WalshUniversity Literacy Initiative on Dr.Kilpatrick’s talk re: "How We Remember Words, and Why Some Children Don't"

I decided to ask a question as follows and hope to receive a response.


‘Efficiently remembering words via Orthographic Mapping appears to require letter sound proficiency and phonemic proficiency.’ (Dr. David Kilpatrick.)

My question:

How do we explain how millions of kids around the world do Orthographic mapping despite being taught letter sounds wrongly? Many kids around the world are taught consonants with extraneous sounds. How do they map words when letter sound proficiency is required?

I checked Twitter and found the same YouTube as above posted by Pam Kastner and this is what I tweeted:

I have asked a question on a post by Walsh Literacy Initiative at https://youtube.com/watch?v=54J5llogLuc

I look forward to a response.

I would be grateful for a response from any educator here on Twitter.

How did the student who is currently studying in a university in Australia manage to read the nonsense words I gave her to read as in the videos on my blog post at https://www.dyslexiafriend.com/2020/04/i-am-capable-of-navigating-research.html#more
