Identifying Sex Differences in Reading Disability: Lessons from a Twin Study.
Stevenson, Jim
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v4 n4 p307-26 Dec 1992
Examines consequences of using alternative definitions for prevalence, sex ratio and heritability. Demonstrates that the characteristics of reading-disabled children vary with the way disability is defined. Concludes that the use of regression-based procedures for identifying reading disability is desirable. Suggests insufficient evidence exists to justify adoption of separate regression procedures for the two sexes. (RS)
