The hypothesis being tested in this paper is whether children who display poor reading skills in first grade have a 90% chance of continuing to have poor reading skills three years later. The paper examines how, based on a review of 25 studies, 50% of children in third grade exhibiting emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD) also had reading achievement lower than expected, based on their assessed intellectual levels. The also paper discusses how, in addition to EBD and learning disabilities (LD), third grade children with poor reading ability are also affected by serious antisocial behavior.
