I thought this was an interesting conclusion to the review:
Thought it might be worth linking to this thread:Dyslexia is fundamentally a deficiency of decoding skills. Treating the recognition of whole words as the essence of early reading could reasonably be considered as a source of the prevalence of this condition (see Orton, 1929). Moving toward modifying the method for teaching beginning reading, rather than trying to find some deficiency in the intellectual makeup of the young reader, could well
become a civil rights initiative in the future.
