Map of Europe showing % of errors in word reading at the end of first year of formal school, by country. 2003.
N.B Two cultural factors hugely influence the speed & ease of learning to read and spell a written language accurately: transparency of the language's spelling code (orthographic depth) + the teaching method used.

PIRLS international reading results: both orthographic depth and instruction method are important

A litany for failure. Reading practices that set up children to struggle:
''It is a dangerous fallacy to think that guessing at words from context helps developing readers to make meaning from text.''

Long-term effects of synthetic v analytic phonics teaching on the reading and spelling ability of 10 yr old boys and girls

Balanced literacy / mixed methods teaching seen through the eyes of a beginning reader.

Maggie Snowling's et al study focused on the reliability and validity of the year one phonics screening check.
http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1 ... 12029/full
''We have shown that the new phonics screening check is a **valid measure of phonic skills and is sensitive to identifying children at risk of reading difficulties. Its slight tendency to overestimate the prevalence of at-risk readers (as compared with standardised tests of reading accuracy and fluency) is arguably a favourable property for a screening instrument. We agree that early rigorous assessment of phonic skills is important for the timely identification of word reading difficulties''

Why do children need to be able to decode pseudo/nonsense words?
So that, along with reading any new words they come across, they can confidently read books by authors such as Roald Dahl and Lewis Carroll who often use nonsense words, of course! http://www.listsofnote.com/2012/02/gobblefunk.html
