While understanding ofphonological awareness has increased over the past 20 years, Layton and Deeny (1996)  report few practical applications of this knowledge. Recently, several creative clinical management programs for developing phonological awareness have been reported (e.g., McFadden, 1998; van Kleeck, Gillam, & McFadden, 1998). However, with the amount of information that is available on this topic, an expectation is that many more treatment studies would have been published. One reason for the lack of practical application could be the way in which our graduate students are being educated. More emphasis on the application of theories and research discussed in the classroom to experiences gained in university clinics may be needed.
