Description

How peripheral visual stimuli affect the silent reading of children is a question which has received little attention in previous investigations. The present study is an attempt to investigate four phases of this problem: first, the extent to which peripheral visual stimuli are factors in the reading activities of children; second, the relation of speed and comprehension to the response of children to peripheral visual stimulation; third, differences in the use of peripheral visual stimulation found with differences in sex, grade classification, and reading grade; and fourth, the presence or absence of developmental stages in the use of peripheral visual stimuli in children of different chronological ages, reading ages, and reading quotients
