The Influence of Vocabulary Age and Spatial Dimension on Rapid Picture Naming in Children with Reading Disorders.
Walker, Marianna M.; Rastatter, Michael P.
Journal of Communication Disorders, v36 n4 p307-19 Jul-Aug 2003
This study measured naming reaction times of 40 normal or reading disordered (RD) children to picture stimuli of varying vocabulary age and spatial dimension. Dimension appeared to differentiate between the two groups with the control group faster in naming three-dimensional pictures and the RD group faster in naming two-dimensional stimuli. RD children were also slower to name later acquired vocabulary. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
