Comparisons of Learning Ease and Transfer Propensity in Poor and Average Readers.
Day, Jeanne D.; Zajakowski, Amy
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v24 n7 p421-26,33 Aug-Sep 1991
Assisted and unassisted performance of 14 average readers and 14 readers with learning disabilities (ages 10-13) were compared on a reading comprehension task. The groups differed in how easily they learned to find the main idea under different topic sentence placement conditions, with the learning-disabled readers requiring significantly more instruction to reach mastery criterion.
