Effects of Verbal Coding on Learning Disabled and Normal Readers Visual Short-Term Memory.
Swanson, Lee
The hypothesis that reading difficulty of learning disabled (LD) children is attributable to deficiencies in verbal encoding was investigated with 60 LD and normal children (mean CA=9.1, mean IQ=103.5). Ss were compared on recall of a serial short-term memory task after pre-training of named and unnamed stimulus conditions. Data suggested that primary reading deficits in LD children are attributable to verbal encoding deficiencies (visual-verbal integration) and not in areas of visual learning as suggested by the perceptual-deficit hypothesis.
