Verbal Recall of Auditory and Visual Signals by Normal and Deficient Reading Children.
Levine, Maureen Julianne
Verbal recall of bisensory memory tasks was compared among 48 9- to 12-year old boys in three groups: normal readers, primary deficit readers, and secondary deficit readers. Auditory and visual stimulus pairs composed of digits, which incorporated variations of intersensory and intrasensory conditions were administered to Ss through a Bell and Howell Language Master. Continuous monitoring of heart rate and Galvanic Skin Response was performed, and reading error types were analyzed. Results supported the validity of the reading classification system of R. Rabinovitch for differentiating groups of deficient readers. Recall performance was found to differ for visual information processing and sequential recall, with more errors for both observed in the secondary reading group. Findings were consistent with a hypothetical model based on attentional and cognitive factors important for visual and auditory processing in reading. (Author/CL)
