wo experiments were conducted to examine non-word reading strategies in dyslexia. In Experiment 1 children with developmental dyslexia were given non-word stimuli to read in isolation. The dyslexics produced fewer analogy responses (e.g. reading dalk to rhyme with talk) than did chronological age (CA) or reading age (RA) controls. Experiment 2 adopted a version of Goswami's clue word technique and found that the dyslexics performed at an overall level comparable not only to the RA controls but also to the CA controls. All three groups produced a high incidence of analogous responses for the non-word stimuli. The results suggest that the units employed for dyslexic reading (graphemes/phonemes vs. rimes) may vary with task demands and that for dyslexics the provision of clue words may be particularly helpful. © 1997 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
