Abstract

Chinese stem-deriving instruction has been proved to effectively help people with reading disabilities recognize Chinese characters. With the applications and development of information technology, cybernetic Chinese stem-deriving instruction can help more people with reading disabilities learn Chinese characters and peruse articles more effectively. In this study, we develop computer-assisted instruction method for Chinese stem-deriving instruction and compare three teaching strategies. In this work, we recruit three elementary students with reading disabilities as participants, and evaluate the effectiveness of instructing with a proposed teaching strategy.
