The study investigated the impact of systematic synthetic phonics teaching as an early intervention in reading among 32 English Learners in an inclusive setting in a Hong Kong Kindergarten. A broader definition of Special Educational Needs was adopted in the study, and the participating children with SENs ranged from having the disadvantaged socio-economic background to the new immigrants, and the children with other learning difficulties such as inattention, and learning progresses at a slower pace.
