The External Validity of Age-versus IQ-Discrepancy Definitions of Reading Disability: Lessons from a Twin Study.
Pennington, Bruce F.; And Others
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v25 n9 p562-73 Nov 1992
This study of 640 twins with reading disability and 436 controls (mean age 12) examined external validity of the distinction between specific reading retardation and reading backwardness, in 3 domains: genetic etiology, sex ratio and clinical correlates, and neuropsychological profiles. There was no evidence of differential genetic etiology of the two phenotypes (discrepancies based on age or intelligence). (JDD)
