Contributions cover definitions, diagnosis, and evaluation, and discuss remediation and therapy, prevention of concomitant disorders, and longitudinal studies of dyslexic students later in life. Of special interest are descriptions of recent breakthroughs in brain research with the use of PET and MRI scans and genetic analysis. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
