Early Identification and Interventions for Dyslexia: A Contemporary View
Snowling, Margaret J.
Journal of Research in Special Educational Needs, v13 n1 p7-14 Jan 2013
This paper reviews current proposals concerning the definition of dyslexia and contrasts it with reading comprehension impairment. We then discuss methods for early identification and review evidence that teacher assessments and ratings may be valid screening tools. Finally, we argue that interventions should be theoretically motivated and evidence based. We conclude that early identification of children at risk of dyslexia followed by the implementation of intervention is a realistic aim for practitioners and policy-makers. (Contains 1 figure.)
