About this book


A balanced view of recent research on reading disability is presented by leading international scholars representing various subdisciplines of psychology and allied sciences. The volume provides researchers, graduate students, educators and other professionals with up-dated and practical useful knowledge of and insights into the latest theories and findings of the nature and causes of reading disability. Rational guidelines for assessment, prevention and intervention are also provided, based on such concepts as phonological and orthographical processing, automaticity and metacognition. Several chapters are written without technical terminology, yet with scientific rigor, and should be readable by a wide audience.
