A Comparison of Visual and Auditory Channels in Learning Disabled and Control Children.
Estes, Robert E.; Stewart, Janet C.
Visual and auditory paired-associate learning tasks were presented to 125 fourth grade children (45 learning disabled, 39 border line learning disabled, and 41 nonlearning disabled). The visual task produced a greater number of correct responses than did the auditory task. There were no differences among groups on either task. Scores on the Illinois Test of Psycholinguistics were analyzed both between and within learning classifications and were correlated with scores from both paired associate tasks. It was hypothesized that the nonlearning disabled children rely on an auditory mode of processing information, while the learning disabled children rely either on a visual or a mixed auditory-visual mode.
