The Identification and Prevalence of Specific Reading Retardation.
Rodgers, B.
British Journal of Educational Psychology, v53 n3 p369-73 Nov 1983
Asserts that the inference that a "hump" in the statistical distribution of reading achievement data represents retardation is unwarranted. Contends that the use of any particular cutoff point to identify severe underachievement in reading is arbitrary, and thus that the issue of reading retardation prevalence is inseparable from its definition.
