Defining Dyslexia as a Developmental Language Disorder: An Expanded View.
Catts, Hugh W.
Topics in Language Disorders, v16 n2 p14-29 Feb 1996
Current research supporting the language basis of dyslexia is reviewed, suggesting that phonological processing deficits are at the core of dyslexia and less pronounced reading problems. The role of higher-level language functioning and phonological processing is considered in an expanded view of the language basis of reading disabilities. Implications for early identification and remediation of reading disabilities are presented. (Author/PB)
