Reading, Perception and Language.
Duane, Drake D., Ed.; Rawson, Margaret B., Ed.
The nine papers in this book discuss aspects of language processing that contribute to reading difficulty. After a summary of the 1974 World Congress on Dyslexia, at which these papers were presented, the following subjects are examined: historical background and educational treatment of dyslexia; the structure of language; neuroanatomy underlying language function; memory and cognitive skills in reading acquisition; the roles of visual and auditory perception in language processing; cross-modal development and reading; and psychiatric aspects of language disability.
