Neuropsychological Classification and Treatment of Dyslexia.
Bakker, Dirk J.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v25 n2 p102-09 Feb 1992

Premature reliance on left hemisphere reading strategies or later failure to shift from earlier right hemisphere strategies are hypothesized as resulting in two different types of dyslexic reading.
