Defining Dyslexia as a Developmental Language Disorder.
Catts, Hugh W.
Annals of Dyslexia, v39 p50-64 1989
The paper discusses problems with traditional definitions of dyslexia and reviews research that suggests a more comprehensive definition, viewing dyslexia as a developmental language disorder that involves a deficit in phonological processing. The disorder is seen as manifesting itself in various phonological difficulties as well as in a specific reading disability. (Author/JDD)
