Adlof, Suzanne M.; Hogan, Tiffany P. – Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, 2018
Purpose: The purpose of this tutorial is to discuss the language basis of dyslexia in the context of developmental language disorders (DLDs). Whereas most studies have focused on the phonological skills of children with dyslexia, we bring attention to broader language skills. Method: We conducted a focused literature review on the language basis…

Dyslexia is known as a Learning Disability (LD), a reading disability and a neurological disability; yet there is confusion about dyslexia and the associated support required in learning. Challenges are experienced by adult students with dyslexia in both social and organisational contexts. This study explored the life experiences of adult students…

Worthy, Jo; Salmerón, Cori; Long, Stacia L.; Lammert, Catherine; Godfrey, Vickie – Literacy Research: Theory, Method, and Practice, 2018
Since 1985, when Texas passed the first dyslexia law, there has been a profusion of dyslexia legislation across the country, with a rapid increase in recent years. Including Texas, which has multiple laws, 42 states have passed dyslexia legislation focused on identification, intervention, accommodations, funding, and/or dyslexia specialists. Seven…

Worthy, Jo; Svrcek, Natalie; Daly-Lesch, Annie; Tily, Susan – Journal of Literacy Research, 2018
Although researchers have studied dyslexia for over a century, there is still much debate about how dyslexia differs from other reading difficulties and how to support students labeled dyslexic. Nevertheless, dyslexia policy and practice are steeped in authoritative discourse that speaks of a definitive definition, unique characteristics, and…

Kearns, Devin M.; Hancock, Roeland; Hoeft, Fumiko; Pugh, Kenneth R.; Frost, Stephen J. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2019
Advances in neurobiological research have created new opportunities for understanding and exploring dyslexia. The purpose of this article is to (a) provide a straightforward, although not overly simplified, overview of neurological research on dyslexia and (b) make connections between neurological research and classroom interventions for students…

Rappolt-Schlichtmann, Gabrielle; Boucher, Alyssa R.; Evans, Miriam – Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, 2018
Purpose: In this article, we explore the deficit view of dyslexia and consider how it may narrow research so as to hamper the progress of scientific discovery and constrain best practices to the detriment of the overall well-being and growth of students with dyslexia. We consider the neurodiversity view of dyslexia as an alternative to the deficit…

Verhoeven, Ludo; Keuning, Jos – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2018
The present study aimed to explore the nature of developmental dyslexia in a language considered to have a transparent orthography, namely, Dutch. We assessed the accuracy and efficiency of decoding words and pseudowords with four lengths as well as three types of phonological ability in 2,760 typical children and 397 peers with dyslexia across…

Cabbage, Kathryn L.; Farquharson, Kelly; Iuzzini-Seigel, Jenya; Zuk, Jennifer; Hogan, Tiffany P. – Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, 2018
Purpose: Children with dyslexia have speech production deficits in a variety of spoken language contexts. In this article, we discuss the nature of speech production errors in children with dyslexia, including those who have a history of speech sound disorder and those who do not, to familiarize speech-language pathologists with speech…

Andreassen, Rune; Jensen, Magne S.; Bråten, Ivar – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2017
We investigated the use of self-regulated study strategies among undergraduates with dyslexia by means of extensive web-based diary data, comparing their strategy use to that of matched students without dyslexia who completed the diary in the same period. Additionally, we examined the perceived benefits of using the recorded strategies in both…

Proctor, Carla M.; Mather, Nancy; Stephens-Pisecco, Tammy L.; Jaffe, Lynne E. – Communique, 2017
School psychologists are often involved in evaluating students who have been referred for reading problems or are suspected of having dyslexia. To accomplish this task, it is important to have a thorough understanding of dyslexia, and know what factors to consider. Therefore, the purposes of this article are to describe: (1) the primary and…

Cavalli, Eddy; Colé, Pascale; Leloup, Gilles; Poracchia-George, Florence; Sprenger-Charolles, Liliane; El Ahmadi, Abdessadek – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2018
Developmental dyslexia is a lifelong impairment affecting 5% to 10% of the population. In French-speaking countries, although a number of standardized tests for dyslexia in children are available, tools suitable to screen for dyslexia in adults are lacking. In this study, we administered the "Alouette" reading test to a normative sample…
