Description

This 17th volume in the Extraordinary Brain Series presents a comprehensive overview of dyslexia—its causes, how it is diagnosed and treated, and the sociopolitical contexts in which intervention occurs. It is based on the meeting of the Extraordinary Brain Symposium hosted by The Dyslexia Foundation (TDF) from June 23 through June 29, 2018 in Winterton, South Africa. This volume complements the forthcoming volume edited by Elena Grigorenko and Yury Shtyrov, which provides an overview of current research regarding language development.
