Letter Naming Time, Digit Span, and Precocious Reading Achievement.
Jackson, Nancy Ewald; Myers, Mary Gjerness
Intelligence, v6 n3 p311-29 Jul-Sep 1982
In two six-month longitudinal studies of intellectually advanced preschool children, letter naming time and background digit span were moderately good predictors of concurrent reading achievement, while no other standard cognitive indices, including mental age, were associated with reading achievement. Both memory span and retrieval were related to reading ability. (Author/RD)
