The article presents a study on reading retardation and group intelligence test performance of exceptional children. The researchers attempted to determine whether or not related readers score higher on an individual intelligence test than would be predicted from the results of a group intelligence test requiring reading. Normal readers and accelerated readers were also tested and the regression effect between test performances was taken into account to evaluate the difference between predicted and observed scores.
