Sample text

Their errors were often words that were semantically consistent with the context, showing a reliance on context to help infer upcoming words that good readers did not show. Perfetti and colleagues (1979) argued from these results that although good readers can use context to make guesses about upcoming words, as indicated by their superior cloze performance, they do not need to do so during online, real-time reading. Their stimulus-driven word recognition skills are fast and accurate enough to take priority.

These skills, in turn, predict success at higher levels of processing, including text comprehension, both in the short term among elementary school students and in the long term—even among college students. The Neural Substrate of the Solution: What Does the Reading System Look Like Once the Vision-Language Interface Is Established? Two major bodies of evidence address this question. One is evidence from trauma-induced brain damage; the other is evidence from neuroimaging. Traumatic Dyslexia: Evidence From Lesion Damage Three major types of trauma-induced dyslexia can be found consequent to specific brain damage (Banich, 1997; McCarthy & Warrington, 1990).

Although 5- to 8-year-old children may not be at adult levels in the speed, accuracy, and complexity of these skills, or in their freedom from distractibility and attentional limitations when trying to exercise them, they are nevertheless quite impressive in absolute terms. They have come a long way since infancy. Despite their visual, motor, and linguistic accomplishments, however, prereading children do not know how to read. Reading requires that a new set of skills be developed—treating visual stimuli as words comprising texts that refer to and describe objects, scenes, and events in symbolic form, rather than presenting visual evidence of objects, scenes, and events directly to the machinery of visual perception.
