Listening Selectively: Some Implications from Dichotic Listening Studies for Disabled Readers.
Leong, C. K.
The dichotic listening paradigm in relation to specific reading disability was investigated with 58 severely disabled readers and 58 above-average readers (all 9-year-old males). Comparison of scores from a Dichotic Digits Task and Dichotic Sides and Types Tasks indicated that disabled readers performed worse than controls in the overall right-ear effect, and demonstrated the ineffective use of strategies by disabled readers when they were specifically instructed to report dichotic materials by sides (left/right ear) and types (digits/letters of the alphabet) of stimuli. The concept of reading disability as retardation in the acquisition of skills rather than the loss of abilities was supported. (IM)
