Objective: The Comprehensive Trail Making Test (CTMT) is sensitive to simple and complex sequencing deficits in children who have sustained TBI. However, it is unclear whether sequencing deficits may predict fluency related deficits in reading and math among this population. The current study examined this matter by assessing whether CTMT performance was predictive of Broad Reading and Broad Math achievement scores on the Woodcock-Johnson III Test of Achievement Abilities–Third Edition (WJ-III-ACH). Method: The study included 170 children and adolescents (37.6% female) who were on average 14.6 years old (SD = 13.7). Participants completed the CTMT and standard battery of the WJ-III-ACH. CTMT factor scores were created to assess simple sequencing (Trials 1, 2, and 3) and complex sequencing (Trials 4 and 5). Results: In the first regression model, CTMT complex sequencing was a significant predictor of Broad Reading scores (p < .001), whereas CTMT simple sequencing was not (p>.05). The...
