Improving Text Coherence in Basal Readers: Effects of Revisions on the Comprehension of Hearing-Impaired and Normal-Hearing Readers.
Israelite, Neita Kay; Helfrich, Mary Anna
Volta Review, v90 n6 p261-76 Oct-Nov 1988
The study found that revising basal reader stories to improve text coherence resulted in improved comprehension for hearing impaired readers. Findings suggest that current efforts to control readability through stringent syntactic guidelines may result in texts that are more difficult, rather than less difficult, for hearing impaired readers to understand.
