Spatial localization thresholds (minimum horizontal offset of the misaligned gabor) are shown in degrees (+ SE) for the average performance across each of the three gabor positions. The older CA [high IQ] good readers performed best, with the DD and CA [low IQ] groups performing comparably, indicating that nonverbal IQ is a more significant predictor than reading ability for this task. Worst performance was seen by the RA group. Comparisons between CA and RA children indicates a developmental trend in spatial localization. (** denotes significantly different from RA group, p < .01; ^denotes significantly different from CA[H] group, p < .05).
