Torgesen, Joseph K.; Wagner, Richard K.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v25 n9 p577-81 Nov 1992
This commentary on a paper by Diane Sawyer (EC 602 748) on relations between various language skills and the development of reading ability addresses potential limitations in the implementation of structural equation modeling. The commentary concludes that the data presented by Sawyer do not support the interpretation that reading comprehension affects word recognition. (JDD)
