Abstract. The indices of children’s oculomotor activity during reading
are determined by the maturity level of cognitive processes involved in the
psychophysiological structure of reading and underlie the rate of reading skill
development from ages 6 – 7 to 9 – 10 years. The lack of differences in the basic
indices of eye movements between normally- and poorly-reading children indicates
different rates of reading skill improvement in children with different initial levels of
skill development (poorly-reading children had higher rates of skill development).
This might be explained by the later formation of rudimentary cognitive functions
in these children.
