Developing Normal Reading Skills: Aspects of the Visual Processes Underlying Word Recognition.
Aghababian, Valerie; Nazir, Tatjana A.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v76 n2 p123-50 Jun 2000
Investigated visual word recognition of first- through fifth-graders. Found that the "viewing position effect" typically seen in skilled readers and visual field asymmetries in recognizing individual letters in words emerged early at the end of the first year of reading instruction. Noted that findings support the view that basic reading skills are attained very early during acquisition. (Author/KB)
