Letters to the Editor...
testing reading performance

Arthur...excellent site!
May I contribute some insights into reading
from a researcher's viewpoint:
We find that habits both good and bad tend
to become consolidated by the age of 9. If
the child has acquired a fast but
inaccurate guessing habit, then that tends
to be consolidated at the expence of the
slower but more accurate phonic skills.
That then limits them to smaller words and
familiar words.
The reasons for this can be found at the
research team's diagnostic website:
