Speed of processing, rapid naming, and reading in adult compensated dyslexics

George Georgiou, Rauno Parrila

Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting abstract


Several studies have found that dyslexics experience speed of processing (SOP) deficits across a variety of tasks and that SOP may, in turn, underlie the relationship between rapid naming speed and reading. The purpose of the present study was to examine different aspects of SOP (simple-complex, visual auditory, verbal-nonverbal) and determine whether high-functioning adult dyslexics are reliably different from normally reading adults, and which, if any, of the SOP problems are reliably associated with reading accuracy and fluency. Data are currently analyzed.
