Phonological Impairment in Italian: Acquired and Developmental Dyslexia
Recent analysis of reading breakdown in adult readers within the framework of information-processing models show that different dyslexic syndromes may affect selectively the direct visual route to meaning (surface dyslexia; Marshall and Newcombe, 1973), or the prelexical phonological route (deep and phonological dyslexia; Coltheart, Marshall and Patterson, 1980; Beauvois and Derouesne, 1979).
