Cognitive Strategies of Children with Reading Disability and Normal Readers in Visual Sequential Memory.
Bayliss, Janet; Livesey, P. J.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v18 n6 p326-32 Jun-Jul 1985
Two studies involved 21 reading disabled elementary students grouped as either dysphonetics (characterized by nonphonetic spelling errors) or dyseidetic readers (characterized by spelling words according to sound rather than appearance). Cognitive strategy differences were noted in visual sequential memory. Findings emphasized the importance of an awareness of cognitive style in early reading instruction. (CL)
