The Road Not Taken: An Integrative Theoretical Model of Reading Disability.
Spear-Swerling, Louise; Sternberg, Robert J.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v27 n2 p91-103,122 Feb 1994
This article describes a theoretical model of reading disability that integrates research findings in cognitive psychology, reading, and education. The model identifies four patterns of reading disability: (1) nonalphabetic readers, (2) compensatory readers, (3) nonautomatic readers, and (4) readers delayed in the acquisition of word recognition skills. Educational implications of the model are discussed. (DB)
