The Impact of Environmental Factors on Components of Reading and Dyslexia.
Samuelsson, Stefan; Lundberg, Ingvar
Annals of Dyslexia, v53 p201-17 2003
Data from 123 male adults were analyzed to estimate environmental (home, school, and literacy environments) influences on components of literacy skills. Results suggest a substantial social-cultural bias in the delineation of literacy skills and in definitions of reading disabilities. Only phonological ability appeared relatively unaffected by environmental influences supporting phonological deficits as the core component in defining dyslexia. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
