Investigated verbal and nonverbal paired associate learning among 8- to 11-year-old Dutch dyslexic children and chronological-age and reading-age controls. Found that dyslexic children had difficulty with verbal learning of words and nonwords. Phonological and general learning errors were distributed similarly for the reading groups. Found no differences between dyslexics and age-matched readers on nonverbal learning. Dyslexics performed worse than age-matched controls and similar to reading-age controls on phonological awareness. (Author/KB)
