Most studies on reading have been conducted with English-speaking subjects. It is crucial to also examine studies conducted in different languages, in order to highlight which aspects of reading acquisition and dyslexia appear to be language-specific, and which are universal. Reading Acquisition and Developmental Dyslexia sheds new light on dyslexia and its relationship with reading acquisition, presenting two unique advancements in this area. Looking at studies conducted in different languages, the prerequisites of reading acquisition are examined, and the findings from studies of skilled adult readers are presented. The manifestations of developmental dyslexia and the main contemporary explanations for it are outlined, providing an in-depth, well researched discussion of the topic. The authors conclude by offering a new framework which could explain both reading acquisition and developmental dyslexia. A fascinating book offering a unique insight into the topic of dyslexia, it will be of great interest to students and lecturers in cognitive psychology, educational psychology, and psycholinguistics, as well as those with a more everyday involvement with the disorder such as speech and language therapists.

Dyslexia is a disability that exists in all countries that have high expectations for literacy. The inability to read in spite of normal intellectual potential represents one of the most puzzling educational challenges for literate societies, regardless of the culture or language. This book examines medical, psychological, educational, and sociological data from comprehensive case studies of preteen dyslexic children, in order to profile the disability as it occurs in seventeen different nations. Interviews with the children and their parents reveal how children with dyslexia are identified and treated around the world, and provide a look at various perceptions of dyslexia and its challenges. Researchers and practitioners in education, psychology, and health-related professions will find this case book to be an excellent reference. Parents of children with dyslexia will find the advocacy recommendations helpful.

Edited by leading scholars in their field and written by researchers at the cutting edge of these developments, the chapters in each text provide details of the original works and their theoretical and empirical impact, and then discuss the ways in which thinking and research has advanced in the years since the studies were conducted. Revisiting the Classic Studies in Developmental Psychology traces 14 ground-breaking studies by researchers such as Harlow, Meltzoff & Moore, Kohlberg and Bandura to re-examine and reflect on their findings and engage in a lively discussion of the subsequent work that they have inspired.

The past decade has brought important new advances in the fields of genetics, behavioral genetics, linguistics, language acquisition, studies of language impairment, and brain imaging. Although these advances are each highly relevant to the determination of what a child is innately prepared to bring to language acquisition, the contributing fields of endeavor have traditionally been relatively self-contained, with little cross communication. This volume was developed with the belief that there is considerable value to be gained in the creation of a shared platform for a dialogue across the disciplines. Leading experts in genetics, linguistics, language acquisition, language impairment, and brain imaging are brought together for the purpose of exploring the current evidence, theoretical issues, and research challenges in a way that bridges disciplinary boundaries and points toward future developments in the search for the genetic and environmental bases of language acquisition and impairments. This collection provides discussions and summaries of: *breakthrough findings of the genetic underpinnings of dyslexia; *theoretical and empirical developments in the specification of a phenotype of language acquisition and impairment; *evidence of familiarity and twin concordances of specific language impairment; and *new evidence from brain imaging. It concludes with a critical response from an advocate of rational empiricism.

This volume on neuropsychological and neurolinguistic perspectives of dyslexia and alexia is based on the papers presented at the NATO Advanced Study Institute held towards the end of 1991. The book, consisting of sixteen chapters from cognitive neuropsychologists and neurolinguists from different countries, is divided into three parts addressing the following issues: Part I: Neuropsychological substrates; Part II: Case studies, and Part III: Computational and linguistic approaches. The contributors are from England and Wales, different parts of Europe, Scandinavia, North America and Russia. This volume and the companion volume Reading Disabilities: Diagnosis and Component Processes (Kluwer, 1993) are helpful to researchers in the fields of literacy and cognitive neuropsychology. It is intended for researchers, clinicians, university professors, senior or post-graduate students in psychology, psycholinguistics, cognitive neuropsychology, educational psychology, and special education.

This book presents current research on dyslexia in alnguages other than English. It is increasingly evident that it is essential to define dyslexia in terms of the language of instruction because learning to read cannot be separated from the linguistic parameters of that language. Differences in the orthographic, phonological, morphemic and inflectional structure of a language influence the degree of difficulty encountered by children when learning to read. Consequently, authors describe the linguistic properties of their languages and discuss the problems encountered by dyslexics in that language and the dyslexics' underlying cognitive deficits. The objective of this book is to explore a variety of languages and to identify both the language specific characteristics of reading and spelling problems in each language and the core deficits that are common to all dyslexics regardless of the language of instruction.
