Predicting Math Outcomes: Reading Predictors and Comorbidity
Fletcher, Jack M.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v38 n4 Jul-Aug 2005
This commentary addresses issues concerning (a) the measurement of numbers, letters, and words versus cognitive processes in early screening batteries, and (b) comorbid associations of reading, math, and attention disorders. Based on reading prediction studies, assessments that include numbers should be most predictive of math outcomes. However, given the comorbid association of reading, math, and attention disorders, measures sensitive to reading and attention difficulties may be necessary in early screening batteries for math disabilities.
