Studies the subgroups of reading disabled children on the basis of similarities in the revised Weschler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC-R) profiles. Five different types of profiles detected using the subtests from the WISC-R with reading disability; WISC-R profiles for reading disabled children; Primary and secondary classification by syndrome.
