A Prospective Study of the Relationship between Phonological, Semantic, and Syntactic Skills and Specific Reading Disability.
Gillon, Gail; Dodd, Barbara J.
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v6 n4 p321-45 Dec 1994
Compares the performance of poor readers with that of matched good readers and younger average readers. Found that all poor readers performed poorly in all three linguistic areas concurrently, and these difficulties persisted; poor readers demonstrated a difference between their phonological processing skills and their semantic/syntactic skills; and poor readers' phonological processing skills were particularly impaired.
