When the correlations were compared, both auditory (F(3,33) = 14.22, p [is less than] .001) and visual (F(6,103) = 6.63, p [is less than] .001) skills revealed differences, with T-K comparisons showing AM and AD in the auditory area and VM and visual spatial relationship (VS) in the visual area to be significantly better predictors than their companion skills.
