Abstract
This study examined the predictive value of orthographic processing versus orthographic knowledge for spelling proficiency. Third-grade students with typical language and literacy skills completed measures of orthographic knowledge, orthographic processing, and spelling. Results showed that neither orthographic processing nor orthographic pattern knowledge predicted spelling proficiency. These results may help guide future research and inform spelling instruction.
