- Reading Fluency: The Whole Is More than the Parts. Katzir, Tami; Youngsuk Kim; Wolf, Maryanne; O'Brien, Beth; Kennedy, Becky; Lovett, Maureen; Morris, Robin // Annals of Dyslexia;2006, Vol. 56 Issue 1, p51
This study examined the relative contributions of phonological awareness, orthographic pattern recognition, and rapid letter naming to fluent word and connected-text reading within a dyslexic sample of 123 children in second and third grades. Participants were assessed on a variety of fluency...
- Testing the Double-Deficit Hypothesis in an Adult Sample. Miller, Carlin J.; Miller, Scott R.; Bloom, Juliana S.; Jones, Lauren; Lindstrom, William; Craggs, Jason; Garcia-Barrera, Mauricio; Semrud-Clikeman, Margaret; Gilger, Jeffrey W.; Hynd, George W. // Annals of Dyslexia;2006, Vol. 56 Issue 1, p83
The double-deficit hypothesis of dyslexia posits that reading deficits are more severe in individuals with weaknesses in phonological awareness and rapid naming than in individuals with deficits in only one of these reading composite skills. In this study, the hypothesis was tested in an adult...
- Morphological Knowledge in Children with Dyslexia. Duranovic, Mirela; Tinjak, Sanela; Turbic-Hadzagic, Amira // Journal of Psycholinguistic Research;Dec2014, Vol. 43 Issue 6, p699
The phonological skills are not the only linguistic abilities which are observed to have some influence on reading achievement in dyslexics. In addition to phonological skills, morphological skills should be also taken in consideration. The aim of this study is to extend investigation the...

- Familial Aggregation of Dyslexia Phenotypes. Raskind, Wendy H.; Li Hsu; Berninger, Virginia W.; Thomson, Jennifer B.; Wijsman, Ellen M. // Behavior Genetics;Sep2000, Vol. 30 Issue 5, p385
There is evidence for genetic contributions to reading disability, but the phenotypic heterogeneity associated with the clinical diagnosis may make identification of the underlying genetic basis difficult. In order to elucidate distinct phenotypic features that may be contributing to the...
- Naming Difficulties in Children with Dyslexia. Faust, Miriam; Dimitrovsky, Lilly; Shacht, Tamar // Journal of Learning Disabilities;May/Jun2003, Vol. 36 Issue 3, p203
The present study used the tip-of-the-tongue (TOT) experimental paradigm in a picture naming task to explore the source of the naming deficits of children with dyslexia. Compared with a control group of typically developing readers, the children with dyslexia showed fewer correct responses and...
