Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
This volume grew out of a conference held in Crete in 2000 and sponsored by the National Dyslexia Research Foundation. Forty-one international specialists from the fields of cognitive, clinical and experimental psychology, and neuroscience contribute 17 chapters exploring critical questions about time, fluency, and intervention in dyslexia. Coverage includes the nature and extent of rate-of- processing, time-, and fluency-related deficits in developmental dyslexia; the hypothesized source(s) of these deficits; the amenability of time- and fluency-related deficits to change; and the theoretical principles which should guide intervention in these areas.
