Overview

Dyslexia: Psychological Theory Assessment and Support provides an accessible introduction to contemporary dyslexia research. The authors draw on their broad experience from the fields of psychology and education, to present an engaging discussion of the many distinct, sometimes controversial, theories proposed to explain the cause(s), features and manifestations of dyslexia. The book also discusses the range of psychological and educational assessment practices used to identify dyslexia and how the condition differs from other learning difficulties. Finally the book will present a range of support practices and learning interventions designed to remediate underlying deficits specifically associated with dyslexia.
