Cassidy, Bill; Cassidy, Laura – State Education Standard, 2019
Although it affects as many as one in five individuals in the United States and 80 percent of all children labeled as learning disabled, dyslexia remains poorly understood in educational circles. It was the science supporting the clinical diagnosis of dyslexia that led Laura, a physician, and others to start a public charter school in Baton Rouge…

van Rijthoven, Robin; Kleemans, Tijs; Segers, Eliane; Verhoeven, Ludo – Reading & Writing Quarterly, 2021
We examined the response to a phonics through spelling intervention for children with developmental dyslexia in word and pseudoword reading efficiency and word spelling. Furthermore, we investigated to what extent the response to the intervention is robust across different cognitive profiles (phonological awareness, rapid automatized naming, and…

Nukari, Johanna M.; Poutiainen, Erja T.; Arkkila, Eva P.; Haapanen, Marja-Leena; Lipsanen, Jari O.; Laasonen, Marja R. – Journal of Learning Disabilities, 2020
Effectiveness of individual and group-based neuropsychological interventions on cognitive aspects of dyslexia in young adults was evaluated. Dyslexic adults were randomly assigned into individual intervention (n = 40), group intervention (n = 40), or wait-list control group (n = 40). The interventions focused on cognitive strategy learning,…

Lee, Lay Wah – Australian Journal of Learning Difficulties, 2019
This paper synthesizes research on dyslexia remediation, word recognition development and the Malay language writing system to design and develop a Malay language word recognition intervention program (MyBaca) for children with dyslexia. Malay is alphabetic, is highly transparent, with salient syllabic units. The program is designed based on…

McGill, Natalee – ProQuest LLC, 2018
This descriptive case study approach with multiple cases and an interrupted time-series design used quantitative and qualitative data to answer two research questions: 1) What changes occur over time in the problem-solving strategies, text-reading accuracy, and phonological knowledge of struggling readers in response to targeted instruction in an…

Shaywitz, Bennett A.; Shaywitz, Sally E. – Oxford Review of Education, 2020
We review the evolution of the conceptualisation of dyslexia and along with it the current, 21st century definition of dyslexia. Our starting point is the seminal report by Pringle Morgan in 1896, followed by early 20th century reports by Hinshelwood, and continuing with concepts of brain injury and minimal brain dysfunctions then to the emergence…

Johnston, Vickie – Reading Teacher, 2019
Dyslexia is a neurological language-based learning disability. Several legislative bills related to dyslexia have recently been introduced in the United States so dyslexia can be understood and interventions in reading instruction can be provided. Studies have shown measurable improvements in the language areas of the brain's left hemisphere after…

Gearin, Brian; Turtura, Jessica; Kame'enui, Edward J.; Nelson, Nancy J.; Fien, Hank – Educational Policy, 2020
This article provides an overview of recent changes to state-level dyslexia legislation. It begins by applying a variant of Kingdon's multiple streams approach to explain how the dyslexia education "policy window" came to be opened. The article then describes the most likely effects and side effects of the new laws. Likely short-term…

Tilanus, Elisabeth A. T.; Segers, Eliane; Verhoeven, Ludo – Reading & Writing Quarterly, 2020
The present study investigated responsiveness to intervention in children with an earlier versus later diagnosis of dyslexia. We examined differences between second (n=122; early diagnosis) and third (n=158; late diagnosis) graders with dyslexia on reading and spelling abilities before, during and after a dyslexia intervention as well as in…

D'Mello, Anila M.; Gabrieli, John D. E. – Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, 2018
Purpose: This review summarizes what is known about the structural and functional brain bases of dyslexia. Method: We review the current literature on structural and functional brain differences in dyslexia. This includes evidence about differences in gray matter anatomy, white matter connectivity, and functional activations in response to print…
