​​​​​​Planting the Seeds of language™ - Phonological success stories 

"La finalité de la lecture est la compréhension de ce qui est lu.

Cependant, une grande partie des difficultés d’apprentissage de la lecture ne provient pas de difficultés de compréhension mais de difficultés de décodage, c’est-à-dire de difficultés à lire des mots réguliers sur le plan des correspondances graphème-phonème, ce qui est le cas de la plupart des mots du français."
