The Development of Spelling Knowledge and Its Role in Reading Acquisition and Reading Disability.
Ehri, Linnea C.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v22 n6 p356-65 Jun-Jul 1989
In contrast to the hypothesis that dyslexics possess phonological deficits of neurological origin, the paper proposes that the source of the deficit is primarily experiential. Evidence from normal reading and spelling development as well as from comparisons of dyslexic and nondyslexic readers is offered. (Author/DB)
