Laterality; Cerebral dominance; Reading (Elementary); St. Bartholomew School (Columbus, OH)


The present study was undertaken to investigate available evidence which may contribute toward a better understanding of the relationship between differing dominance patterns and reading achievement. This investigation is in regard to the following question: Will fourth grade children who had crossed-dominance in grade two have lower reading scores than those who developed a preferred dominance by grade two? The purpose of this study is to make a further attempt to investigate possible answers to this inquiry.
