Early Identification of Dyslexia: Evidence from a Follow-Up Study of Speech-Language Impaired Children.
Catts, Hugh W.
Annals of Dyslexia, v41 p163-77 1991
This study compared (1) performance on language skills and phonological process measures by 41 kindergarten children with speech/language impairments, and (2) their reading ability in first grade. Children with semantic-syntactic language deficits exhibited more difficulties in reading than did children with articulation impairments. Phonological processing skills were good predictors of reading achievement. (Author/DB)
