Layes, Smail; Lalonde, Robert; Rebai, Mohamed – Reading & Writing Quarterly, 2019
We examined the effects of an adaptive phonological training program on the enhancement of 3 processing abilities--namely, phonological awareness, rapid automatized naming, and phonological short-term memory--as well as word and pseudoword reading in Arabic-speaking children with dyslexia. We compared an experimental group (n = 20; mean age =…

Funderud, Tonje; Mononen, Riikka; Radišic, Jelena; Laine, Anu – European Journal of Special Needs Education, 2019
The study aimed to investigate variations in addition and subtraction fluency by observing grade three students in Norway (n = 253, M[ subscript age] = 8.38 y.) and Finland (n = 209, M[subscript age] = 9.35 y.) while controlling for their age and non-verbal reasoning. Gender differences were also examined. The focus of the study was on the…

McVeigh, Claire; Wylie, Judith; Mulhern, Gerry – International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, 2019
Working memory (WM) is a recognised component of executive function and has undergone scrutiny in terms of bilingual and monolingual performance comparisons. Research to date, however, has not consistently replicated the presence of bilingual advantage. The present study examined short-term (STM) and WM in immersion-educated children and a matched…

O'Connor, Megan; Geva, Esther; Koh, Poh Wee – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2019
This study set out to compare patterns of relationships among phonological skills, orthographic skills, semantic knowledge, listening comprehension, and reading comprehension in English as a first language (EL1) and English language learners (ELL) students and to test the applicability of the lexical quality hypothesis framework. Participants…

Layes, Smail; Khenfour, Hichem; Lalonde, Robert; Rebai, Mohamed – Reading Psychology, 2019
In this study, we conducted a lexical decision test using masked priming paradigm to examine the morphological and orthographic priming effects in word recognition. Morphologically related word pairs can be derivational, sharing the same root or not (pseudo derivational). However, the orthographically related pairs share the same letters in…

This study examined whether there is a developmental difference in the emergence of an item-position effect in intelligence testing. The item-position effect describes the dependency of the item's characteristics on the positions of the items and is explained by learning. Data on fluid intelligence measured by Raven's Standard Progressive Matrices…

Boersma, Tiffany; Baker, Anne; Rispens, Judith; Weerman, Fred – First Language, 2018
Morphophonological processing involves the phonological analysis of morphemes. Item-specific phonological characteristics have been shown to influence morphophonological skills in children. This study investigates the relative contributions of broad phonological skills and vocabulary to production and judgement accuracies of the Dutch past tense…

Wang, Li-Chih; Yang, Hsien-Ming – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2018
This study aimed to investigate the development of visual and auditory temporal processing among children with and without dyslexia and to examine the roles of temporal processing in reading and reading-related abilities. A total of 362 Chinese children in Grades 1-6 were recruited from Taiwan. Half of the children had dyslexia, and the other half…

Fleckstein, Alice; Prévost, Philippe; Tuller, Laurice; Sizaret, Eva; Zebib, Rasha – Language Acquisition: A Journal of Developmental Linguistics, 2018
Identifying specific language impairment (SLI) in bilingual children represents a clinical challenge because of similarities in language behavior between child second language learners and monolinguals with SLI and because of the lack of standardized language tests on bilingual children. This study investigated the relevance of a LITMUS (Language…
