Working Memory, Short-term Memory, Speech Rate, Word Recognition and Reading Comprehension in Learning Disabled Readers: Does the Executive System Have a Role?
Swanson, H. Lee; Ashbaker, Margaret Howell
Intelligence, v28 n1 p1-30 2000
Explored the contribution of two working memory systems, the articulatory loop and the central executive, and short-term memory to the word recognition and comprehension deficits of children with learning disabilities. Results of 2 experiments with 150 children support the idea that poor word recognition and comprehension reflect deficits in a central executive system. (SLD)
