Successful Dyslexics: A Constructivist Study of Passionate Interest Reading.
Fink, Rosalie P.
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v39 n4 p268-80 Dec-Jan 1995-96
Discusses a study that interviewed 12 dyslexics, including a Nobel laureate, a member of the United States Academy of Sciences, and other professionals in fields requiring reading. Finds that all of them developed basic fluency three to four years later than peers, but still acquired Stage 5 skills through avid reading about a topic of passionate interest. (SR)
