Abstract

We contrasted second-graders’ word reading in Chinese after they received 10 weeks of either metalinguistic (phonetic and semantic radicals) or working-memory training. Although we found training-specific effects on phonological skills and non-word span, the two training groups showed similar improvement in word reading performance compared to the waiting-control group.
