|This collection of papers, based on the Third International Conference of the British Dyslexia Association in April 1994, brings together studies of dyslexia and normal reading development. Key topics include the role of underlying language skills for the development of reading and reading disorders, individual differences among dyslexic readers, the biological bases of dyslexia and techniques for improving reading skills in dyslexic and other poor readers.|

Early Reading Development & Dyslexia|
(By Valerie Muter)
This text focuses on how children learn to read and on the difficulties some children have in acquiring this important skill. It concentrates specifically on the very beginning stages of reading development - that is, in the 4-7 year age group.|This text begins by considering current ideas about how young children begin to acquire reading skills, and draws particularly on research that focuses on the language abilities that they need to have inplace in order to facilitate early reading. The link between phonological abilities and the acquisition of letter knowledge is strongly highlighted, but attention is also paid to other reading-related language skills and to the role that parents and teachers play in promoting good early reading development. Later chapters focus in the importance of early identification of reading problems through screening and assessment procedures. Effective teaching of beginning reading skills within the classroom is discussed, prior to a review of current specialist teaching methods designed to improve reading progress in early-diagnosed young dyslexic children.
Phonology, reading and alphabetic principle; reading, verbal memory and naming skills; phonological difficulties and reading failure - a case study; risk factors, protective influences and compensatory strategies; phonological deficits in dyslexia; children at risk of dyslexia; screening for early reading failure; preventing reading failure; a model for the assessment of reading impairment in young children; teaching young dyslexic children; assessing and teaching the young poor reader - four case studies; questions we still have to answer.
