Working Memory Span and Phonological Awareness Tasks as Predictors of Early Reading Ability.
Leather, Cathy V.; Henry, Lucy A.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v58 n1 p88-111 Aug 1994
Investigated relationships among complex memory span, simple memory span, and phonological awareness tasks and their predictive importance for reading accuracy, reading comprehension, and arithmetic ability. Eleven tests were administered in three sessions to seven-year olds. Results suggested that phonological awareness and complex span tasks make a shared and unique contribution to the variance in all three cognitive abilities. (TM)
