Reading Ability in Signing Deaf Children.
Padden, Carol; Ramsey, Claire
Topics in Language Disorders, v18 n4 p30-46 Aug 1998

It offers support for one such claim although it argues that the relationship does not develop naturally but must be cultivated through experiences that serve to direct attention to correspondences between different language systems.
