Examines the temporal processing deficit hypothesis. Administers a comprehensive battery to reading disabled adults and elementary students (reading-level controls). Finds that the timing tasks shared little variance with phonological sensitivity and contribute little unique variance to word reading. Provides evidence for the involvement of naming deficits in reading disability. (SG)
