dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationships between language development and reading ccmprehension found among thirty-three learning disabled students (LD) and thirty-three students in programs supported by Chapter 1 funds. These sixty-six subjects were in grades three through five in eleven elementary schools in Anderson Community Schools, Anderson, Indiana.The relationships between the language features of syntax and semantics, the language systems of listening and speaking and the levels of reading comprehension were assessed with the Test of Language Development - Intermediate (TOLD-I) and the Gates-MacGinitie Reading Tests, Level B Form 1. The .05 level of significance was set for acceptance of sixteen null hypotheses.The multivariate analysis of variance, used to determine if an overall difference existed between the groups on the assessment measure, indicated that such a difference did not exist. The two-way analysis of variance between the dependent variables of reading comprehension extended scaled scores and the TOLD-I quotient scores for the LD and Chapter 1 students did not yield significant differences. The Pearson product-moment correlation yielded statistical significance but low correlation coefficients (below .40) for the Gates-MacGinitie Reading Test (comprehension subtest) extended scaled scores and the TOLD-I quotients of Speaking, Semantics, Syntax, and Spoken language. All sixteen null hypothese were not rejected. en_US
