A SUGGESTED METHOD FOR PRE-SCHOOL IDENTIFICATION OF POTENTIAL READING DISABILITY.
NEWTON, KENNETH R.; AND OTHERS
THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN PREREADING MEASURES OF VISUAL-MOTOR-PERCEPTUAL SKILLS AND READING ACHIEVEMENT WERE STUDIED. SUBJECTS WERE 172 FIRST GRADERS. PRETESTS AND POST-TESTS FOR WORD RECOGNITION, MOTOR COORDINATION, AND VISUAL PERCEPTION WERE ADMINISTERED. FOURTEEN VARIABLES WERE TESTED. RESULTS INDICATED THAT FORM-COPYING WAS MORE EFFECTIVE THAN IQ AS A PREDICTOR OF READING DISABILITY. THE CORRELATION BETWEEN AGE AND READING WAS LOWEST. APPENDIXES PROVIDE EXAMPLES OF TESTING MATERIALS AND AN OUTLINE OF THE TRAINING SESSIONS. TWENTY-NINE REFERENCES ARE LISTED. (MC)
