Limitations of Sensory-Motor Screening for Reading Problems in the First Grade.
Sautter, Scott W.; Barth, Jeffrey T.
Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, v2 n1 p16-20 Feb 1991
Several assessment procedures were analyzed to determine their ability to discriminate below-average from above-average readers among 50 first graders. Results indicated that language tests were more successful in classifying reading skills than were sensory-motor and perceptual procedures. Clear cut asymmetrical hemispheric specializations, derived from neuropsychological screening measures, were not forthcoming. (Author/JDD)
