They catalyze the endonucleolytic cleavage of DNA sequences which lack the species-specific methylation pattern in the host cell's DNA. Cleavage yields random or specific double-stranded fragments with terminal 5'-phosphates. The function of restriction enzymes is to destroy any foreign DNA that invades the host cell. Most have been studied in bacterial systems, but a few have been found in eukaryotic organisms.

Increased reading speed for stories presented during general anesthesia. (1/1886)BACKGROUND: In the absence of explicit memories such as the recall and recognition of intraoperative events, memory of auditory information played during general anesthesia has been demonstrated with several tests of implicit memory. In contrast to explicit memory, which requires conscious recollection, implicit memory does not require recollection of previous experiences and is evidenced by a priming effect on task performance. The authors evaluated the effect of a standardized anesthetic technique on implicit memory, first using a word stem completion task, and then a reading speed task in a subsequent study. METHODS: While undergoing lumbar disc surgery, 60 patients were exposed to auditory materials via headphones in two successive experiments. A balanced intravenous technique with propofol and alfentanil infusions and a nitrous oxide-oxygen mixture was used to maintain adequate anesthesia. In the first experiment, 30 patients were exposed randomly to one of the two lists of 34 repeated German nouns; in the second experiment, 30 patients were exposed to one of two tapes containing two short stories. Thirty control patients for each experiment heard the tapes without receiving anesthesia. All patients were tested for implicit memory 6-8 h later: A word stem completion task for the words and a reading speed task for the stories were used as measures of implicit memory. RESULTS: The control group completed the word stems significantly more often with the words that they had heard previously, but no such effect was found in the anesthetized group. However, both the control and patient groups showed a decreased reading time of about 40 ms per word for the previously presented stories compared with the new stories. The patients had no explicit memory of intraoperative events. CONCLUSIONS: Implicit memory was demonstrated after anesthesia by the reading speed task but not by the word stem completion task. Some methodologic aspects, such as using low frequency words or varying study and test modalities, may account for the negative results of the word stem completion task. Another explanation is that anesthesia with propofol, alfentanil, and nitrous oxide suppressed the word priming but not the reading speed measure of implicit memory. The reading speed paradigm seems to provide a stable and reliable measurement of implicit memory. (+info)
Readability of patient information leaflets on antiepileptic drugs in the UK. (2/1886)The Audit Commission in the UK recommends that patient information leaflets (PILs) should be audited by health professionals using a formal readability test. However, no such study on antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) has been identified in a Medline search. The aim of this study was to audit the readability of PILs prepared for marketed proprietary AEDs in the UK. Twelve PILs were compared with six antiepileptic drug articles from medical journals and six headline articles from UK newspapers. The Gunning Fog index and the Flesch Reading Ease index were calculated for each PIL and article. The results of the Gunning Fog index and the Flesch Reading Ease score were compared using the Kruskal-Wallis non-parametric test. PILs were shown to have a statistically significant lower mean reading age than the medical articles and newspapers (P < 0.001). The Gunning Fog index and Flesch Reading Ease score showed that PILs had a mean reading age of 8.8 and mean readability score of 69, respectively. In conclusion, the PILs prepared for proprietary antiepileptic drugs in the UK are suitable for the reading age of the general adult population. (+info)
Characteristics of discrepancies between self-reported visual function and measured reading speed. Salisbury Eye Evaluation Project Team. (3/1886)PURPOSE: Visual impairment is a risk factor for morbidity in the elderly and is often screened for by self-report. This study evaluates whether there are subsets for whom there is a discrepancy between self-reported and measured function. METHODS: The prevalence of a discrepancy between self-reported difficulty reading a newspaper and measured reading speed was determined in 2520 community-based men and women, aged 65 to 84 years, and the discrepant group characterized by polychotomous regression. RESULTS: Of subjects who reported minimal difficulty reading a newspaper, 10.8% (227/2107) read newsprint-sized text (0.21 degrees) more slowly than 80 words/min, a level previously shown to be necessary for sustained reading. Poor visual acuity, presence of psychiatric symptoms, and less satisfaction with vision were associated with being in the group that read slowly and reported difficulty with reading. Better cognition, better visual acuity, more years of education, white race, and fewer psychiatric symptoms were associated with being in the group that read more quickly and reported minimal difficulty. When reading the text size at which subjects read their fastest, only 2.6% of those with minimal difficulty remained discrepant. These individuals were more likely to have less education, be male, be African American, and have poorer cognitive status than those who did not remain discrepant. CONCLUSIONS: A subset of the elderly population have a substantial discrepancy between self-reported reading difficulty and measured reading speed. In some, this discrepancy may be based on underlying expectations and experiences, and in others it may represent a transition from no visual impairment to visual impairment. (+info)
Plasticity of language-related brain function during recovery from stroke. (4/1886)BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: This study was undertaken to correlate functional recovery from aphasia after acute stroke with the temporal evolution of the anatomic, physiological, and functional changes as measured by MRI. METHODS: Blood oxygenation level-dependent contrast and echo-planar MRI were used to map language comprehension in 6 normal adults and in 2 adult patients during recovery from acute stroke presenting with aphasia. Perfusion, diffusion, sodium, and conventional anatomic MRI were used to follow physiological and structural changes. RESULTS: The normal activation pattern for language comprehension showed activation predominately in left-sided Wernicke's and Broca's areas, with laterality ratios of 0.8 and 0.3, respectively. Recovery of the patient confirmed as having a completed stroke affecting Broca's area occurred rapidly with a shift of activation to the homologous region in the right hemisphere within 3 days, with continued rightward lateralization over 6 months. In the second patient, in whom mapping was performed fortuitously before stroke, recovery of a Wernicke's aphasia showed a similar increasing rightward shift in activation recruitment over 9 months after the event. CONCLUSIONS: Recovery of aphasia in adults can occur rapidly and is concomitant with an activation pattern that changes from left to a homologous right hemispheric pattern. Such recovery occurs even when the stroke evolves to completion. Such plasticity must be considered when evaluating stroke interventions based on behavioral and neurological measurements. (+info)
Unidirectional dyslexia in a polyglot. (5/1886)Alexia is usually seen after ischaemic insults to the dominant parietal lobe. A patient is described with a particular alexia to reading Hebrew (right to left), whereas no alexia was noted when reading in English. This deficit evolved after a hypertensive right occipitoparietal intracerebral haemorrhage, and resolved gradually over the ensuing year as the haematoma was resorbed. The deficit suggests the existence of a separate, language associated, neuronal network within the right hemisphere important to different language reading modes. (+info)
Cortical auditory signal processing in poor readers. (6/1886)Magnetoencephalographic responses recorded from auditory cortex evoked by brief and rapidly successive stimuli differed between adults with poor vs. good reading abilities in four important ways. First, the response amplitude evoked by short-duration acoustic stimuli was stronger in the post-stimulus time range of 150-200 ms in poor readers than in normal readers. Second, response amplitude to rapidly successive and brief stimuli that were identical or that differed significantly in frequency were substantially weaker in poor readers compared with controls, for interstimulus intervals of 100 or 200 ms, but not for an interstimulus interval of 500 ms. Third, this neurological deficit closely paralleled subjects' ability to distinguish between and to reconstruct the order of presentation of those stimulus sequences. Fourth, the average distributed response coherence evoked by rapidly successive stimuli was significantly weaker in the beta- and gamma-band frequency ranges (20-60 Hz) in poor readers, compared with controls. These results provide direct electrophysiological evidence supporting the hypothesis that reading disabilities are correlated with the abnormal neural representation of brief and rapidly successive sensory inputs, manifested in this study at the entry level of the cortical auditory/aural speech representational system(s). (+info)
Reading with simulated scotomas: attending to the right is better than attending to the left. (7/1886)Persons with central field loss must learn to read using eccentric retina. To do this, most adopt a preferred retinal locus (PRL), which substitutes for the fovea. Patients who have central field loss due to age-related macular degeneration (AMD), most often adopt PRL adjacent to and to the left of their scotoma in visual field space. It has been hypothesized that this arrangement of PRL and scotoma would benefit reading. We tested this hypothesis by asking normally-sighted subjects to read with the left or right half of their visual field plus 3.2 degrees in the contralateral field masked from view. Letter identification, word identification, and reading were all slower when only the information in the left visual field was available. This was primarily due to the number of saccades required to successfully read to stimuli. These data imply that patients would be better off with PRL to the right of their scotoma than to the left for the purposes of reading. (+info)
Reading with central field loss: number of letters masked is more important than the size of the mask in degrees. (8/1886)When the center of a readers, visual field is blocked from view, reading rates decline and eye movement patterns change. This is true whether the central visual field is blocked artificially (i.e. a mask) or through disease (e.g. a retinal scotoma due to macular degeneration). In past studies, when mask size was defined in terms of the number of letters masked from view, reading rates declined sharply as number of letters masked increased. Patients with larger central scotomas (in degrees of visual angle) also read slower. We sought to determine whether number of letters masked or size of the mask in degrees is the predominant factor affecting reading rates and eye movement behavior. By matching number of letters masked across several mask sizes (and compensating for reduced acuity in the periphery), we found that number of letters masked is the more important factor until mask size is quite large (> or = -7.5 degrees) and number of letters masked from view is more than seven.

Maximum reading speed and binocular summation in patients with central vision loss. - Semantic Scholar
OBJECTIVE Visual acuity is a poor predictor of the maximum reading speed of patients with central vision loss. This study examines the effects of binocular summation of acuity on the maximum reading speed of these patients. DESIGN Prospective, observational case series. PARTICIPANTS Twenty patients with central vision loss participated. METHODS Maximum reading speed was measured binocularly using the MNREAD acuity charts. Monocular and binocular acuities were measured with the Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) chart. Binocular summation was evaluated with a binocular ratio (BR) calculated as the ratio between the acuity of the better eye to binocular acuity. Fixation stability and preferred retinal locus (PRL) distance from the former fovea were evaluated with the MP-1 microperimetre. RESULTS Six patients experienced acuity summation (BR | 1.05), 5 experienced acuity inhibition (BR | 0.95), and 9 showed equality (BR = 1 ± 0.05). There were no differences in the mean acuity of

ERIC - A Comparison of Two Cognitive Reading Strategies on the Comprehension of Functional Expository Text by High School...
This dissertation report focuses on the results of an intervention study that examined the effectiveness of two cognitive-based reading strategies (5 Ws and an H and paragraph summarization) on the reading comprehension skills of 13 high school students with mild intellectual disabilities as well as the students' abilities to generalize these skills to various functional expository reading passages. There were four experimental phases in the study: Baseline, Intervention, Maintenance 1, and Maintenance 2. During each phase, participants were required to read functional expository texts and answer researcher-developed reading comprehension probes. Baseline conditions were continued throughout the study to measure the ability of students to generalize reading comprehension skills. During the Intervention Phase, students were provided instruction on the two cognitive-based reading strategies within a single-subject alternating treatments research design. During the

EMC² = comprehension: A reading strategy instruction framework for all teachers
The framework is divided into three phases: establishing meaning making (Before Reading); maintaining meaning-making processes (During Reading); and consolidating meaning making (After Reading). Each phase utilises recommended reading strategies. However, it must be emphasised that the phases do not imply that the meaning-making process consists of a set of sequential before, during and after steps. Rather, the phases are intended to ease the acquisition of reading strategy instruction for teachers new to the concept and provide sufficient structure to ensure it is sustained. As shown in a study which entailed the application of the EMC framework by student teachers at a South African university (Klapwijk, In press), student teachers were able to successfully apply the framework precisely due to the structure it provided; once student teachers levels of familiarity and comfort with comprehension instruction increased, so did their insight into the reading process and their creativity in using ...

NEA - New Reading Scores Flat
By Alain Jehlen. New fourth and eighth grade reading scores released Wednesday show essentially no progress since the No Child Left Behind Act was signed into law in 2002.. The scores are from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), the only achievement test program that attempts to measure the academic skills of students throughout the country. The new scores continue the trend lines that show reading scores essentially flat over the past decade and math scores gradually rising but no faster than in the years before NCLB.. "Its clear that high-stakes, do-or-die testing is not the answer," said NEA President Dennis Van Roekel. "Its time for creative, innovative, flexible solutions." The latest results showed fourth grade scores in 2009 were unchanged from two years earlier. Scores for racial and ethnic groups-white, black, Hispanic, Asian/Pacific Islander, and American Indian/Alaska Native-were also level, as were the scores for boys and girls.. In eighth grade, there was a ...

This paper describes a secondary analysis of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) reading scores by gender. Data were national public 4th- and 8th-grade reading scores from composite and subscales for 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011, and 2013. Twelfth-grade scores for composite and literary experience from 2005, 2009, and 2013 and gain information from 2005 were included. Differences (p.|0.001; Cohens d effect size) in reading average scale scores by gender were consistent across grade level and years with females scoring higher than males. Results are congruent with a previous study of NAEP reading by gender across fourth-, eighth, and twelfth-grade-levels for 1994, 1998, 2000, 2002, and 2003 (Klecker, 2006). Discussion includes comparisons with cross-cultural international assessments and possible explanations for the widely-observed gender difference in large-scale standardized reading assessments.

AU - Yan, Ming. AU - Yan, Shaorong. AU - Zhou, Xiaolin. AU - Inhoff, Albrecht W.. PY - 2016/2/1. Y1 - 2016/2/1. N2 - In two experiments, we examined the contribution of articulation-specific features to visual word recognition during the reading of Chinese. In spoken Standard Chinese, a syllable with a full tone can be tone-neutralized through sound weakening and pitch contour change, and there are two types of two-character compound words with respect to their articulation variation. One type requires articulation of a full tone for each constituent character, and the other requires a full- and a neutral-tone articulation for the first and second characters, respectively. Words of these two types with identical first characters were selected and embedded in sentences. Native speakers of Standard Chinese ...
Frontiers | The Contribution of Phonological Awareness to Reading Fluency and Its Individual Sub-skills in Readers Aged 9- to...
Research examining phonological awareness (PA) contributions to reading in established readers of different skill levels is limited. The current study examined the contribution of PA to phonological decoding, visual word recognition, reading rate, and reading comprehension in 124 fourth to sixth grade children (aged 9 to 12 years). On the basis of scores on the FastaReada measure of reading fluency participants were allocated to one of three reading ability categories: dysfluent (n = 47), moderate (n = 38) and fluent (n = 39). For the dysfluent group, PA contributed significantly to all reading measures except rate, but in the moderate group only to phonological decoding. PA did not influence performances on any of the reading measures examined for the fluent reader group. The results support the notion that fluency is characterized by a shift from conscious decoding to rapid and accurate visual recognition of words. Although PA may be influential in reading development, the results of the current study
Enhancing Emergent Literacy in Preschool Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Children Through Interactive Reading - Oxford Scholarship
Deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) children are more at risk for language and reading difficulties than hearing children. Because early language development is an important factor in later reading success, it is important to promote this development as early as possible through activities aimed at emergent literacy skills. Promoting reading development is one of the main goals in deaf education, but it seems important to work on the foundations of reading in a much earlier stage. Parents and preschool teachers can play an important role in promoting emergent literacy in the preschool period. This chapter discusses what emergent literacy entails, how it relates to later reading success, and what we know from the literature on emergent literacy in children with hearing loss. Strategies for interactive book reading with DHH children are presented, and the potentials of technology for interactive reading with DHH children are discussed.
Short-Term Estimates of Growth Using Curriculum-Based Measurement of Oral Reading Fluency: Estimating Standard Error of the...
Abstract. Curriculum-based measurement of oral reading fluency (CBM-R) is an established procedure used to index the level and trend of student growth. A substantial literature base exists regarding best practices in the administration and interpretation of CBM-R; however, research has yet to adequately address the potential influence of measurement error. This study extends results of Hintze and Christ (2004) by incorporating research-based estimates of the standard error of the estimate (SEE) to generate likely magnitudes for the standard error of the slope (SEb)across a variety of progress monitoring durations and measurement conditions.Fourteen progress monitoring durations (2-15 weeks) and nine levels of SEE (2, 4,6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18) were used to derive SEb. The outcomes are discussed in relation to assessment practices, such as selecting optimal progress monitoring durations to reduce measurement error. Implications and limitations are discussed ...
The growth of reading skills in children with Down Syndrome. - Oxford Neuroscience
There appears to be a close and probably causal relationship between early variations in phoneme skills and later reading skills in typically developing children, though the pattern in children with Down Syndrome is less clear. We present the results of a 2-year longitudinal study of 49 children with Down Syndrome (DS) and 61 typically developing (TD) control children with similar initial levels of reading skill. Phoneme awareness and vocabulary were strong concurrent predictors of initial levels of reading skill in both groups. However, longitudinally phoneme awareness was a predictor of the growth of reading skills in TD children but not in children with DS. There was a very high degree of longitudinal stability in reading skills in children with DS, and initial levels of reading skills seemed to be highly constrained by general language skills, as indexed by vocabulary knowledge, in this population. We conclude that reading development in children with DS shows similarities and differences to the

Oral Reading Rate, Reading Comprehension, and Listening Comprehension in Learners of EFL - Asian EFL Journal : Asian EFL...
Abstract. This study, motivated by child reading research in L1, explored the relationships between: 1) Two oral reading rates; 2) Reading comprehension; and 3) Listening comprehension in English in Japanese learners of English as a foreign language (EFL). Results unexpectedly showed that the correlations between two rates and two modes of comprehension were low or non-significant, which are in marked contrast to high correlations reported for English-speaking children. In addition, and more surprisingly, the EFL readers exhibited only small incremental or even detrimental changes from habitual to maximum rate. These unexpected results are discussed in terms of English language teaching/learning practice and the possible effects of Japanese speech and orthography. ...

Increasing Literacy Skills for Students with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities: Effects of Integrating Comprehensive Reading Instruction with Sign Language Larissa Beecher and Amy Childre Abstract: This study evaluated the impact of a comprehensive reading program enhanced with sign language on the literacy and language skills of three elementary school students with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Students received individual and small group comprehensive reading instruction for approximately 55 minutes per session. Reading instruction combined the PCI Reading Program with literacy and language activities to target concepts of print, phonemic and phonological awareness, sight word recognition, vocabulary and oral language, and comprehension Results indicated that all three participants showed growth in their literacy skills, specifically in the areas of letter identification, letter-sound knowledge, sight word knowledge, receptive vocabulary, and listening comprehension
Reading 360: Comprehension, Language and Reading Development - Workbks Level 6 : 9780602232627
Susan's notes on school: Building Comprehension in Adolescents
In the reading section one key aspect is the focus on reading level. In todays CCSS age, we are asking students to read increasingly complex material. When teaching strategies, it is essential, however, that the reading material be at the students independent reading level- not at the instructional reading level or at a challenge reading level. Knowing your students and having a variety of readings at a range of levels is important when teaching the strategy. Once the strategy is taught, more complex material can be introduced. It is important to note that many reading strategies are designed to improve a students ability to gather information from text at or near their reading level. If a student is reading significantly below grade level, they need different strategies to approach and learn from readings. The authors introduce TRAP, TRAP IDEAS, and TWA strategies for reading. TRAP is a strategy for students reading at or about at grade level. This will not be a successful strategy for ...

Questions provided for each story require a nice mix of concrete, rote recall and higher order comprehension skills. They are multiple choice, matching, or true/false format, so students do not get bored by too much repetition.. One outstanding feature of this application is the ability for users to add their own content quickly and easily. Teachers and parents can add passages, pictures and questions of their own design, so it would be very feasible to custom-design programming for a family or classroom. One caution, however, is in order-there is not an obvious way to delete stories once they are added. Even removing the text of title and passage did not work-I was left with a blank entry that ...
Dienekes' Anthropology Blog: Reading, Intelligence and Memory in Children
This study investigates the genetic relationship among reading performance, IQ, verbal and visuospatial working memory (WM) and short-term memory (STM) in a sample of 112, 9-year-old twin pairs and their older siblings. The relationship between reading performance and the other traits was explained by a common genetic factor for reading performance, IQ, WM and STM and a genetic factor that only influenced reading performance and verbal memory. Genetic variation explained 83% of the variation in reading performance; most of this genetic variance was explained by variation in IQ and memory performance. We hypothesize, based on these results, that children with reading problems possibly can be divided into three groups: (1) children low in IQ and with reading problems; (2) children with average IQ but a STM deficit and with reading problems; (3) children with low IQ and STM deficits; this group may experience more reading problems than the other two. ...

Predicting Word Reading and Comprehension With Executive Function and Speed Measures Across Development: A Latent Variable...
The present study explored whether different executive control and speed measures (working memory, inhibition, processing speed, and naming speed) independently predict individual differences in word reading and reading comprehension. Although previous studies suggest these cognitive constructs are important for reading, the authors analyze the constructs simultaneously to test whether each is a unique predictor. Latent variables from 483 participants (ages 8-16 years) were used to portion each cognitive and reading construct into its unique and shared variance. In these models 2 specific issues are addressed: (a) Given that the wide age range may span the theoretical transition from "learning to read" to "reading to learn," the authors first test whether the relation between word reading and reading comprehension is stable across 2 age groups (ages 8-10 and 11-16); and (b) the main theoretical question of interest: whether what is shared and what is separable for word reading and reading ...

Reading Comprehension - ARCOLA SCHOOL DISTRICT
Focusing on Individual Needs: Daily reading instruction includes three main teaching strategies in every classroom: shared reading, guided reading and independent practice. Shared reading is where teachers provide whole-class instruction on a comprehension strategy. It is important to note that when doing whole class instruction, teachers use reading materials that are at grade level. In other words, if they are teaching 5th grade, they use reading materials that a fifth grader should be able to read. Guided reading is where teachers work with small groups of students to provide them with instruction based on their individual needs. While the teacher is working with small groups of students in guided reading, the other students are working on independent practice. This is where individual students work on a variety of activities designed to practice the reading comprehension strategy that is being focused on at the time. It is also a time where each student works at their individual reading ...

Purpose: The purpose of this project is to test the efficacy of the Nemours BrightStart! program for prekindergarten children who need additional support in order to enter kindergarten with emergent literacy skills similar to their peers. While practitioners and researchers recognize early childhood as a key period of literacy development, many students who enter kindergarten do not demonstrate the literacy skills necessary to learn to read and write. Research shows that the reading achievement gap is evident before kindergarten and that children who enter kindergarten with lower emergent literacy skills are unlikely to catch up to their peers. BrightStart! is a fully-developed, commercially available small-group literacy program that supplements regular classroom instruction for prekindergarteners and is aimed at improving the emergent literacy skills of students who are at risk for reading difficulties in kindergarten and beyond.. Project Activities: In order to test the efficacy of the ...
British Library EThOS: A longitudinal investigation of the social, cognitive and social cognitive predictors of reading...
This thesis reports a longitudinal investigation of social, cognitive and social cognitive predictors of early reading comprehension in a sample of 98 typically developing children. Children were aged three at the beginning of the study and, importantly, they were all non--‐readers and had not experienced formal literacy instruction. Childrens progress in literacy--‐related development was reassessed over the following 28 months. Reading comprehension was assessed at the final time point, when children were six years old. The first study investigated the influence of childrens home literacy environment (HLE) on their cognitive pre--‐reading abilities at three years, and on their emergent literacy skills at five years. The second study considered the Simple View of Reading (SVR) to examine direct and indirect predictive pathways from childrens preschool cognitive abilities to reading comprehension skills at the age of six. Thirdly, the role of theory of mind was explored to determine ...
W-20. Sentence reading: An fMRI study at 4T - Oxford Neuroscience
In this study blood flow was monitored while monolingual right handed subjects read English sentences. Our results confirm the role of the left perisylvian cortex in language processing. However, individual subject analyses reveal a pattern of activation characterized by several, small, limited patches rather than a few large anatomically well-circumscribed centers. Between-subject analyses confirm a later-alized pattern of activation, indicate as active classical language areas such as Brocas, Wernickes and the angular gyrus, and also point to areas only more recently considered as language-relevant including the anterior portion of the superior temporal lobe and the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex.

Are you concerned that your child is reading below grade level? Many children find learning to read challenging, but some students struggle significantly more than others and fall behind their peers in their reading assessment scores.. Reading assessments measure factors such as vocabulary, decoding skills, and reading comprehension. The tests serve to identify reading competencies in individual students relative to a set standard. When a student is considered to be reading at grade level, that childs reading assessment score falls within the approximate range of the average score of a normalized standard sample of students in that grade level group. When a student is considered to be reading below grade level, it generally means the childs reading assessment score was lower than the average assessment score of students in the normalized standard sample for his grade level. Some critics challenge the fairness of grade-level standards, arguing that the results only reflect how students ...

The resulting measure is the FRII, an interviewer-administered questionnaire with 11 items on functional reading activities most relevant to GAAMD patients: 1) reading written print, 2) reading to pay bills or write a check, 3) reading in order to take medicine, 4) reading instructions, 5) reading labels, 6) reading to play games, 7) reading to make or receive a telephone call, 8) reading words or numbers on the screen while watching television, 9) reading when using a computer, 10) reading street signs, and 11) reading signs for directions. For each reading activity, sub-items are asked about dependence on visual aids, adaptive behaviors and assistance from others to perform the activity. Item scores reflect decreasing levels of functional reading independence. The FRII is included as an exploratory outcome in a Phase Ib/II study of the safety and evidence of activity of an investigational drug in GAAMD patients.. ...

The objective of this randomized clinical trial is to address unanswered questions about the relative effectiveness of treatments for children with both Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and significant reading difficulties (RD). The study evaluates attentional and word reading outcomes for students with both conditions when provided with either (a) disorder-specific ADHD treatment (carefully managed medication + parent training), (b) disorder-specific RD treatment (intensive, individualized reading instruction), or (c) the combination of ADHD and RD treatment. The study aims to address the relative benefits of providing either disorder-specific ADHD or RD treatment alone and providing the combined treatment. The investigators hypothesize that the combined treatment approach will result in better outcomes in terms of both word reading/decoding and a reduction in ADHD symptoms than either of the disorder-specific treatments alone. Treatment will last for 16 weeks, with assessment ...

Assessment matters: issues in the measurement of reading comprehension. - Lancaster EPrints
Background. The Neale Analysis of Reading Ability (NARA; Neale, 1997) is a widely used assessment of reading comprehension and word reading accuracy. Spooner, Baddeley, and Gathercole (2004) questioned the suitability of the NARA for identifying children with specific reading comprehension deficits. Aims and methods. An evaluation of the NARA measurement of word reading and reading comprehension level was undertaken in relation to models of reading ability. Appropriate control measures were considered. The strengths and weaknesses of different forms of reading comprehension were also evaluated. Results. Previous research into reading comprehension difficulties using the NARA has adopted satisfactory control measures in relation to word reading ability. There are limitations associated with all the considered forms of reading comprehension assessment. Conclusions. If administered and interpreted appropriately, the NARA is an effective instrument for researchers and practitioners who need to ...

The assessment of reading comprehension difficulties for reading intervention | USC Research Bank - University of the Sunshine...
There are many environmental and personal factors that contribute to reading success. Reading comprehension is a complex interaction of language, sensory perception, memory, and motivational aspects. However, most existing assessment tools have not adequately reflected the complex nature of reading comprehension. Good assessment requires a multifaceted approach to reading diagnosis and flexible interventions in order to cater for individual learning needs. In recent times, the Four Roles Model has enabled educators to broaden the focus of literacy programs in many Australian schools. Such a focus can provide a framework to better understand the complex nature of reading comprehension and its various situational applications. This discussion investigates the educational issues for the assessment of students with reading comprehension difficulties and suggests appropriate principles and strategies that teachers can apply to inform assessment and teaching practice.

Speed, Accuracy, and Comprehension of Adolescent Braille Readers in a Specialized School, Online, Abstract: All 30 adolescent braille readers at the Tennessee School for the Blind were interviewed using a questionnaire developed by the authors, and their reading rates, accuracy, and comprehension were determined via the Gilmore Oral Reading Test. The questionnaire tapped information on onset of blindness, early reading experiences, service delivery systems, cause of blindness, and acceptance and use of braille. The most important factor related to braille reading speed was age of onset of blindness. No direct relationships were found between reading speed and comprehension or reading speed and reading for pleasure in braille.

The two major determinants of reading comprehension are language comprehension and decoding, but prior studies of the development of reading comprehension from an early age show inconsistent results. To clarify these inconsistencies we report a 6-year longitudinal study (starting at Age 4 years) where we control for measurement error and track the development and interrelationships between a range of predictors of reading comprehension (language, decoding, and cognitive skills). We found two main pathways to reading comprehension: a highly stable language comprehension pathway (reflecting variations in vocabulary, listening comprehension, grammar, and verbal working memory) and a less stable code-related pathway (reflecting variations in phoneme awareness, letter knowledge, and rapid automatized naming). Early language comprehension at Age 4 years is strongly related to code-related predictors (phoneme awareness, letter knowledge, and rapid naming), and influences decoding indirectly through ...
Early prediction of reading : phonological awareness and related language and cognitive skills in children with a familial risk...
This thesis explored the developmental connections from early phonological awareness and related language and cognitive skills to 2nd grade reading accuracy, fluency and specific reading disability, in the context of Finnish: a language with high orthographic regularity. The four studies presented addressed the following three main themes: emerging phonological awareness and its relationship to reading-related language and cognitive skills, links from these childhood skills to 2nd grade outcomes, and early prediction of an individual childs risk for dyslexia. The results are based on behavioural-level tasks and longitudinal assessment of nearly 200 children belonging to the Jyväskylä Longitudinal Study of Dyslexia. The findings indicated that emerging phonological awareness skills can already be measured at the age of 3.5 years using age-appropriate and language-modified tasks. In addition, phonological skills are predicted by prior verbal comprehension, language production and cognitive ...

...One of the key issues in reading disorder is the co-occurrence or comorbidity of reading disorder with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Rates of RD are elevated in ADHD emphasizing the need for comprehensive neuropsychological assessment of children and adults with ADHD.Yoshimasu and colleagues published a free access study of the prevalence rates for RD in a population-based cohort of children and adolescents in Rochester, Minnesota.The researchers in this study used analysis of multiple school and academic records to estimate the prevalence of reading disorder in a cohort of 5718 children. Reading disability was assessed by comparing measures of IQ and reading achievement. Using several validated formulas, reading disability can be assigned with reading achievement falls significant below what would be expected based on individual intelligence. Additionally, ADHD was estimated in the cohort using assessment of DSM-IV criteria, ADHD questionnaire results and evidence by
Texting While Driving: How Dangerous is it? | Feature | Features | Car and Driver
The results, though not surprising, were eye-opening. Intern Browns baseline reaction time at 35 mph of 0.45 second worsened to 0.57 while reading a text, improved to 0.52 while writing a text, and returned almost to the baseline while impaired by alcohol, at 0.46. At 70 mph, his baseline reaction was 0.39 second, while the reading (0.50), texting (0.48), and drinking (0.50) numbers were similar. But the averages dont tell the whole story. Looking at Jordans slowest reaction time at 35 mph, he traveled an extra 21 feet (more than a car length) before hitting the brakes while reading and went 16 feet longer while texting. At 70 mph, a vehicle travels 103 feet every second, and Browns worst reaction time while reading at that speed put him about 30 feet (31 while typing) farther down the road versus 15 feet while drunk.. Alterman fared much, much worse. While reading a text and driving at 35 mph, his average baseline reaction time of 0.57 second nearly tripled, to 1.44 seconds. While texting, ...

Reading Disorder (315) | Abnormal Psychology
A reading disability is a learning disability that involves significant impairment of reading accuracy, speed, to the extent that the impairment interferes with academic achievement or activities of daily life. People with reading disabilities perform reading tasks well below the level one would expect based on their general intelligence, educational opportunities, and physical health.. Reading involves several steps, including: pronunciation, phonics, silent letters, word recognition, and so forth. People with reading deficiencies can exhibit difficulties in one or more of these areas. For people who experience a reading deficiency, there is a considerable gap between the actual level of achievement and the expected level of performance. People with reading disabilities might experience the following: slow reading speed, poor comprehension, omission of words, reversal of words or letters, difficulty decoding syllables or single words and associating them with specific sounds (phonics), and ...
Reading Strategies and Cognitive Skills in Children with Cochlear Implants
The present thesis investigated cognitive ability in children with severe to profound hearing impairment who have received cochlear implants (CIs). The auditory stimulation from a cochlear implant early in life influences most cognitive functions as a consequence of the plasticity of the brain in the young child. It is important to understand the cognitive consequences of auditory stimulation from CIs in order to provide adequate support to these children. This thesis examined three specific aspects of cognitive ability (working memory, phonological skill and lexical access), and reading ability in children with CIs, as compared to children with normal hearing in the same age. The relations between cognitive abilities and reading skills were also investigated, as well as the associations between demographic variables (e.g., age at implantation and communication mode), cognitive abilities and reading skills. The children with CI generally had lower performance levels than the normal hearing ...

EdNext Podcast: Overcoming Knowledge Deficits to Boost Reading Comprehension - Education Next : Education Next
It is often said that, of the subjects taught in school, reading is first among equals - a prerequisite for success in any other area, especially as students move on to college. If thats the case, though, there is cause for concern. While the math achievement of American students has risen steadily in recent decades, especially in the early grades, reading scores have barely budged. Whats behind those trends? And what can teachers do about them?.

Impaired tuning of a fast occipito-temporal response for print in dyslexic children learning to read - Zurich Open Repository...
Developmental dyslexia is defined as a disorder of learning to read. It is thus critical to examine the neural processes that impair learning to read during the early phase of reading acquisition, before compensatory mechanisms are adapted by older readers with dyslexia. Using electroencephalography-based event-related imaging, we investigated how tuning of visual activity for print advances in the same children before and after initial reading training in school. The focus was on a fast, coarse form of visual tuning for print, measured as an increase of the occipito-temporal N1 response at 150-270 ms in the event-related potential (ERP) to words compared to symbol strings. The results demonstrate that the initial development of reading skills and visual tuning for print progressed more slowly in those children who became dyslexic than in their control peers. Print-specific tuning in 2nd grade strongly distinguished dyslexic children from controls. It was maximal in the inferior ...

Early Predictors of Reading Comprehension Difficulties
The aim of the present thesis was to examine the cognitive and language profile in children with poor reading comprehension using a longitudinal perspective. Even though comprehension skills are closely connected to educational success, comprehension deficits in children have been neglected in reading research. Understanding factors underlying reading is important as it improves possibilities of early identification of children at risk of developing reading problems. In addition, targeted interventions may prevent or reduce future problems. Descriptions of the cognitive and language profile in children with different types of reading problems from an early age and over time is an important first step.. The three studies included in this thesis have been conducted using data from the International Longitudinal Twin Study (ILTS). In the ILTS, parallel data have been collected in the US, Australia, Sweden and Norway. Altogether, more than 1000 twin pairs have been examined between the ages 5 and 15 ...
The influence of exposure, parents, and linguistic distance on young European learners' foreign language comprehension
The project Early Language Learning in Europe (ELLiE) has studied the longitudinal effects of an early foreign language (FL) start in seven European contexts. This article presents a sub-study of ELLiE that investigates the impact of out-of-school factors on learners listening and reading skills in year four of formal FL instruction. More specifically, we include Parents educational level, parents use of the FL professionally, exposure, interaction and cognate linguistic distance. Data were collected by means of listening and reading tests and a parents questionnaire. Results of the statistical analyses show that cognate linguistic distance was the strongest predictor of both listening and reading scores, followed closely by exposure, and parents FL use at work and international interaction at some distance. Parents educational levels only impacted on reading scores, and domestic interaction did not have any effect on listening or reading. Furthermore, the results confirm previous research ...

P-center perception in children with developmental dyslexia: do low level auditory deficits underlie reading, spelling, and...
A recent theory proposed by Goswami et al (2002), dubbed the P-Center hypothesis, posits that the characteristic cognitive and behavioral patterns observed in developmental dyslexia are a result of low-level auditory impairments. Previous studies have found that children with developmental dyslexia perform worse on P-center perception tasks when compared to chronological age matched controls, younger reading level controls have intermediate thresholds, and this deficit has also been observed in children with specific language impairment. The current study found similar trends in children aged between 7-16, in that children with dyslexia and dyslexia with additional language difficulties had less sensitive mean thresholds on the P-center perception tasks than chronological age matched controls. If these trends persist, then more ecologically valid stimuli and more sophisticated methods should be used to explore the P-center deficit in children with developmental dyslexia ...

NCTQ: Blog: Don't overdo it on reading comprehension strategies
Before requiring students to make a graphic organizer--or other common comprehension strategies--teachers need to think twice, especially middle and high school teachers. Cognitive psychologist (and NCTQ advisory board member) Dan Willingham worries that we may be overdoing reading comprehension strategy instruction. For most students, these common strategies provide a one-time boost that can be had in as little as five to ten half hour sessions--and there is little benefit beyond the 7th grade ...

Exploitation of Synthetic mRNA To Drive Immune Effector Cell Recruitment and Functional Reprogramming In Vivo | The Journal of...
Therapeutic strategies based on in vitro-transcribed mRNA (IVT) are attractive because they avoid the permanent signature of genomic integration that is associated with DNA-based therapy and result in the transient production of proteins of interest. To date, IVT has mainly been used in vaccination protocols to generate immune responses to foreign Ags. In this "proof-of-principle" study, we explore a strategy of combinatorial IVT to recruit and reprogram immune effector cells to acquire divergent biological functions in mice in vivo. First, we demonstrate that synthetic mRNA encoding CCL3 is able to recruit murine monocytes in a nonprogrammed state, exhibiting neither bactericidal nor tissue-repairing properties. However, upon addition of either Ifn-γ mRNA or Il-4 mRNA, we successfully polarized these cells to adopt either M1 or M2 macrophage activation phenotypes. This cellular reprogramming was demonstrated through increased expression of known surface markers and through the differential ...
