Comparison of two word identification training programs with 122 severely reading disabled children in grades 2 through 6 found both the phonological and the strategy programs resulted in significant improvement in word identification and word attack skills and sizeable transfer-of-training effects. Children at each grade level made equivalent gains with remediation, suggesting the value of remediation across the elementary years. (DB)
