Summary Dyslexia is a term commonly used to refer to severe and pervasive reading impairment in otherwise normal children. Because dyslexia technically refers to reading disability in brain injured patients, organic disorder has been one of the most frequently cited reasons for why Johnny can't read. It is also one of the most misunderstood and expensive problems known to psychologists and educators. This book makes available a systematic and comprehensive treatment of dyslexia. It carefully examines the problem, points out flaws in many of the educational techniques used for training dyslexics, and presents theories as to what constitutes specific reading disability.
