Two experiments were conducted to investigate possible deficiencies in strategies used for decoding words by 20 children (ages 20-12) with intellectual disabilities. Results indicated that subjects did not make use of information in words (specifically letter position cues) to aid in their identification, whereas beginning and experienced nondisabled readers did.
