An Investigation of the Relationship between Reading Disabilities and Oral Syntax and the Temporal Aspects of that Relationship.
Dumas, Marsha Rose
Fifteen eight- and nine-year-old boys with reading disabilities and 15 with normal reading ability participated in a study of the relationships among reading disabilities, oral syntax, and temporal functioning ability (sequencing and the ability to perceive relationships in time). Each subject was given an individual battery of tests which included a measure of receptive vocabulary, five measures of oral syntactic abilities, and five measures of temporal functioning ability. Results indicated that the two groups did not differ significantly in receptive vocabulary, but that the five syntactic measures and the five measures of temporal functioning ability were predictive of group membership. The syntactic measures and the measures of temporal functioning were significantly related to each other. Results were interpreted as supporting the theory that temporal functioning ability is an important aspect of all language and contributes to the relationship between problems in oral syntax and reading disability.
