Information-Processing Patterns in Specific Reading Disability.
Watson, Catherine; Willows, Dale M.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v28 n4 p216-31 Apr 1995
This study investigated specific processing strengths and weaknesses among 75 readers, ages 6-10, with no oral language deficits. Unsuccessful readers of different ages showed similar information processing patterns, and differed from successful first-grade readers on short-term auditory/working memory and decoding/encoding. Three potential subtypes among poor readers were all characterized by difficulty with symbolic processing/memory. (Author/PB)
