The Relationship between Speech-Language Impairments and Reading Disabilities.
Catts, Hugh W.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v36 n5 p948-58 Oct 1993
Fifty-six children with speech-language impairments were identified in kindergarten and followed in first and second grades. Subjects' performance on standardized measures of language ability in kindergarten was closely related to reading outcome, especially reading comprehension. Measures of phonological awareness and rapid automatized naming were found to be the best predictors of written word recognition. (Author/JDD)
