Phonological Coding, Phonological Awareness, and Reading Ability: Evidence from a Longitudinal and Experimental Study.
Vellutino, Frank R.; Scanlon, Donna M.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v33 n3 p321-63 Jul 1987
Reports two studies that provide correlational and experimental evidence for causal relationships between linguistic coding deficits and reading disability. Concludes that phonological coding deficits constitute a major source of reading difficulty in beginning readers, although there was suggestive evidence that semantic and syntactic deficits also may cause such difficulty.
