Three experiments assessed memory skills in good and poor comprehenders, matched for decoding skill. Found that poor comprehenders showed normal sensitivity to phonological manipulations but that their recall of abstract words was poor. Poor comprehenders achieved normal spatial-memory span, but had impaired verbal-memory spans. (Author/KB)
