HUE LABELING AND DISCRIMINATION IN CHILDREN WITH PRIMARY READING RETARDATION.
LANE, H.L.; WILSON, F.R.
THE LABELING AND DISCRIMINATION OF COLORS WERE STUDIED IN CHILDREN WITH PRIMARY READING RETARDATION AND IN A MATCHED GROUP OF NORMAL CHILDREN. TEN MALE STUDENTS IN MICHIGAN REPRESENTING AN AGE RANGE OF 9 YEARS 10 MONTHS TO 14 YEARS 10 MONTHS WERE CHOSEN AS SUBJECTS. DEVELOPMENTAL, MEDICAL, EDUCATIONAL, NEUROLOGICAL, PSYCHIATRIC, AND PSYCHOMETRIC DATA WERE COLLECTED ON EACH SUBJECT. EITHER THE GATES READING TEST OR THE CALIFORNIA READING TEST WAS ADMINISTERED. EACH RETARDED READER WAS MATCHED WITH A NORMAL READER OF APPROXIMATELY THE SAME AGE AND INTELLIGENCE. THE SPECTRAL LOCATIONS OF BOUNDARIES BETWEEN COLOR CATEGORIES WERE COMPARABLE IN THE GROUPS. THE DISCRIMINATION FUNCTIONS OBTAINED FOR BOTH GROUPS WERE BETTER THAN THOSE PREDICTED. THE NORMAL GROUP PERFORMED SIGNIFICANTLY MORE ACCURATELY THAN THE RETARDED READERS. BOTH GROUPS SHOWED A POSITIVE CORRELATION BETWEEN PREDICTED AND OBTAINED DISCRIMINABILITY SCORES. TABLES AND REFERENCES ARE INCLUDED. (BK)
