Word Recognition and the Nature of Reading Difficulty in Children with an Intellectual Disability: A Review.
Jenkinson, Josephine C.
International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, v36 n1 p39-56 1989
Research has found similarities between specific reading disability and reading difficulty in children of low intelligence, especially in short-term memory deficits. Studies indicate that ability to acquire and use a knowledge of spelling patterns is a major problem, and efforts to teach more efficient decoding skills have met with limited success. (Author/JDD)
