The Language-Reading Relationship in Normal and Reading-Disabled Children.
Snyder, Lynn S.; Downey, Doris M.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v34 n1 p129-40 Feb 1991
This study found that word retrieval, phonological awareness, sentence completion, and narrative discourse processing skills of 93 reading-disabled students (ages 8-14) differed from skills of 93 normally achieving students. Performance on sentence completion and word retrieval measures best accounted for variance in younger reading-disabled children's reading comprehension, whereas inferencing skills explained older subjects' variance.
