The Connections between Language and Reading Disabilities: Current Findings and Future Directions
March 27-29, 2003
Researchers have learned a great deal about the causes of impaired reading by studying the relationship between early word reading and speech sound awareness and memory. This investigation has now broadened to include other aspects of language development in children and its impact on various components of reading.
Our March 2003 conference included scholars in cognitive neuroscience, psychology, education, and speech and language sciences. They discussed new empirical findings and identified collaborative approaches that will be effective in identifying and helping children at risk for reading disabilities.
The Connections between Language and Reading Disabilities (2005) is published by Taylor and Francis >>,and includes new research by many of these scholars. Editors of the book are Hugh W. Catts and Alan G. Kamhi.
