Understanding Reading Retardation: Cognitive Aspects.
Leong, Che Kan
The paper discusses research on cognitive processing of disabled readers (mean age 9 years) within a brain-behavior framework and offers some projections into the future. The author focuses on children with severe reading disablility or reading retardation although reference to "backward" readers is also included. The delineation of subgroups of disabled readers, the explication of perceptual versus verbal deficits in these children, and especially differential remediation are seen as necessary continuing tasks for the years ahead.
