Psycholinguistic Assessment: The Clinical Base for Identification of Dyslexia.
Greene, Jane Fell
Topics in Language Disorders, v16 n2 p45-72 Feb 1996
This paper argues that conventional educational and psychological assessment is not sufficient to identify dyslexia, and that psycholinguistic assessment by clinicians specializing in language is required. Psycholinguistic assessment involves use of testing, clinical observations, and language histories for evaluating complex interactions between thought and language. (Author/PB)
