Alternative Conceptualization of Dyslexia: Evidence in Support of a Verbal-Deficit Hypothesis
Vellutino, Frank R.
Harvard Educational Review, 47, 3, 334-54, 77
Critically examines the foci of four prevalent explanations for reading failure in children: visual perception, intersensory integration, temporal-order perception, and verbal functioning. Applying findings from his own laboratory investigations and other selected research to each of the four hypotheses, author argues that the verbal-deficit hypothesis offers the most convincing explanation.
