A Definition of Dyslexia.
Lyon, G. Reid; Shaywitz, Sally E.; Shaywitz, Bennett A.
Annals of Dyslexia, v53 p1-14 2003
This paper elaborates on components of a working definition of developmental dyslexia proposed in 1995 by G. R. Lyon. The 2003 revised definition, based on converging scientific evidence, was developed by a working group of the International Dyslexia Association. The new definition notes the condition's neurobiologic origin and typical presence of a deficit in the phonological component of language. (Contains references.) (DB)
