Prototypes for Teaching Word Recognition-Sight Vocabulary Skills to Learning Disabled Children.
Richmond, Bert O.
Research on the acquisition of sight reading vocabulary by learning disabled (LD) and normal children is reviewed. Studies are explained to have measured the effects of such variables as mode of presentation, amount of practice, and redundancy. Reported is the general conclusion that LD children do not perform as well as normal children on the discrimination learning (sight vocabulary) tasks, but that treatment and practice produces an improvement in reading skills for the LD child.
