The chapters in this volume are the product of a March 2003 conference in Tempe, Arizona, sponsored by the U. of Kansas, bringing together a small group of scholars from diverse backgrounds. Ten papers by 23 contributorsnearly all from the U.S.objectively examine what has been reported about the connections between oral language and reading, summarize the converging behavioral and biological evidence bearing on these connections, and identify the gaps in current knowledge about language and reading. For scholars in language disorders and reading disabilities, speech- language pathologists, special educators, and reading specialists, the text is also suitable for use in graduate courses and seminars.
