Reading Comprehension and Working Memory in Learning-Disabled Readers: Is the Phonological Loop More Important Than the Executive System?
Swanson, H. Lee
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v72 n1 p1-31 Jan 1999
Investigated the contribution of two working-memory systems (the articulatory loop and the central executive) to the performance differences between learning-disabled and skilled readers. Found that, compared to skilled readers, learning-disabled readers experienced constraints in the articulatory and long-term memory system, and suffered executive processing problems nonspecific to their reading-comprehension problems.
