FIFTY-SIX first-grade children were administered measures of general intelligence, decoding speed, phonological awareness, and listening comprehension. All four types of measures were moderately related to end-of-year reading comprehension. Decoding speed accounted for the largest amount of unique variance. The hypothesis that reading is strongly related to general intelligence once differences in decoding ability have been accounted for was not supported. Other relationships among the… Expand

GROUPS OF thirdand fifth-grade children were administered tasks assessing receptive vocabulary, phonological awareness, general name-retrieval ability, decoding skill, wordrecognition speed, and theExpand
The interrelationships among preschool predictors of reading acquisition for German children
A sample of 169 German children were tested in general verbal ability, verbal memory span, phonological awareness, lexical access speed and accuracy, and letter knowledge in preschool. These testsExpand

The purpose of this study was to compare rauding theory (Carver, 1995) to our own evolving model of reading acquisition, which supports stage and phase theories of reading development. The relationsExpand

TLDR
The notion of word recognition modularity in a well-encapsulated orthography strongly support the notion of domain-specific and unrelated to higher-order domain-general cognitive abilities in Hebrew-speaking children. Expand

Auditory-Visual Integration, Intelligence and Reading Ability in School Children
TLDR
It was found that improvement in auditory- visual integration was most rapid in the earliest school years and reached an asymptote by the fifth grade and the correlations obtained between IQ and auditory-visual integration suggested that the two features of functioning were associated but not synonymous.

Processing determinants of reading speed.
TLDR
The results supported the conclusion that one skill allowing fast readers to capture more information from each reading fixation is faster access to letter codes from print, and this represented two important independent correlates of reading ability in a sample of subjects. Expand
