Are Speech Perception Deficits Associated with Developmental Dyslexia?
Manis, Franklin R.; And Others
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v66 n2 p211-35 Aug 1997
Administered phonological awareness and phoneme identification tasks to dyslexic children and chronological age (CA) and reading-level (RL) comparison groups. Found no real differences in categorical perception between dyslexic and RL groups; however, more dyslexics (7 of 25) had abnormal identification functions. Results suggest that some dyslexic children have perceptual deficit for speech that interferes with processing of phonological information. (EV)
