Journal of Learning Disabilities, v32 n5 p417-28 Sep-Oct 1999
Ten students (age 10) with dyslexia were compared to 10 chronological-age controls and 20 reading-age controls. Response latencies of the students with dyslexia were slower when familiar words, letter clusters, and nonwords had to be named. A larger word-frequency effect and larger word-length effect indicate difficulty with increasing task demands. (Author/CR)
