Reading Disability: The Role of Language Deficiencies
Date of Original Version
This article summarizes the role of language deficiencies in reading disability, focusing on two areas that appear particularly critical to reading skill: language processing abilities and the awareness of phonological structure. The distinguishing characteristics of disabled readers are shown to be consistent with theoretical and experimental findings about skilled reading. These characteristics also provide direction for the remediation of reading problems.
