Misspellings evidenced in written responses of third graders during administration of a battery containing 25 true words and 20 nonsense syllable items were analyzed phonologically. Children with histories of disordered phonologies evidenced more phonologically based deviations in their written misspellings than did their peers who had experienced normal phonological development. In addition, the children with disordered-phonology histories relied more on less productive spelling strategies and evidenced poorer phonological awareness skills than their peers with normal-phonology histories.
