Abstract: The present study examined the effect of phonological processing and working memory intervention on the verbal working memory and phonological skills of children with Specific reading disorders. Ten participants between 7 to 10 years of age who met ICD 10 criteria for specific reading disorders, were assigned to an experimental group, or a control group. Intelligence screening was done using the Colored Progressive Matrices. Pre - test and post - test measures were the Test of Memory for Children (TOMC) and Informal Reading Assessment (IRA). The intervention group received 30 sessions of phonological processing intervention and working memory intervention. The control group received no intervention. Post - test assessments included TOMC and IRA. Participants who had received the intervention showed more improvement than controls. The majority of the participants in the experimental group performed higher post - intervention.
