Zusammenfassung

While the relationship between reading and spelling disabilities has been reported for many European orthographies, very few studies have been conducted on other types of orthographies. The current chapter studies the relationship between reading and spelling deficits in Arabic based on an epidemiological survey of these deficits in Arabic-speaking children in Egypt. We screened a sample of 1106 Arabic-speaking third graders for their reading and spelling abilities. The prevalence rate for combined deficits in reading as well as spelling was high (12.6 %), but very low for isolated deficits in reading (0.9 %) or spelling (1.1 %). Importantly, we observed less dissociation of reading and spelling in vowelized Arabic compared to shallow orthographies such as German. This finding has implications for word processing in Arabic and it highlights the need for further studies of both typical and atypical development of literacy skills in Arabic-speaking children.
