Asynchrony of Visual-Orthographic and Auditory-Phonological Word Recognition Processes: An Underlying Factor in Dyslexia.
Breznitz, Zvia
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v15 n1-2 p15-42 Feb 2002
Investigates whether asynchrony of speed of processing between visual-orthographic and auditory-phonological modalities can account for word recognition deficits among dyslexic readers. Indicates that dyslexic readers were slower than control readers in most of the experimental tasks. Proposes a theory suggesting that asynchrony between the processing rate of the visual and the auditory modalities may be an underlying cause of dyslexia. (SG)
