Vellutino, Frank R.; Scanlon, Donna M.; Lyon, G. Reid
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v33 n3 p223-38 May-Jun 2000
This article discusses research on the traditional use of the IQ-achievement discrepancy to define specific reading disability. It highlights results from a study which found that IQ scores did not differentiate between poor readers who were found to be readily remediated and poor readers who were difficult to remediate.
