Dyslexia used to be first defined by means of English physicians, Kerr and Morgan, in 1896. apparently, the structural cortical speculation firstly proposed via Morgan continues to be held in large esteem, albeit in a bit of changed varieties. regardless of eighty years of escalating examine efforts and piles of correspond­ ing data, there maintains to exist a difficult diagnostic-therapeutic clinical void and riddle during which dyslexics can neither be scientifically unique from different sluggish newbies nor medically taken care of; and patho­ gnomonic medical indicators stay as elusive as an appropriate neurophysiologic conceptualization. This ebook is the end result of a IS-year-Iong look for an answer to the riddle characterizing dyslexia. All of my preliminary makes an attempt at re-exploring the secure outdated (cortical, psychogenic, etc.) dyslexic paths and ideas led nowhere. anything new used to be wanted. little ones and adults have been ache. Educators and fogeys have been bewildered. solutions have been wanted. the govt guy­ dated equivalent schooling for the training disabled. Clinicians have been ready. And traditionalists remained fixated to the theoretical prior and ignorant of the medical dyslexic reality.

Example text

In order to explain this clinical phenomenon, the author reasoned as follows. In the presence of visual memory instability, larger word configurations are characteristically more difficult to process and recognize. To understand the reverse situation, one had to assume the coexistence of nonvisual compensatory reading mechanisms aiding visual recognition. Among the many explanatory possibilities, it seemed most reasonable to assume that the scanning of larger and more complex visual gestalt configurations must resul t in greater degrees of proprioceptivel y guided ocularmotor signals and related memory clues which facilitate visual word recognition.

Interestingly enough, these scientific free associations and their experimental pursuit led to a new conceptualization of dyslexia which encompassed the various traditional theories and their respective limitations, "neurotic" contradictions, and errors. Utilizing the analogy of a dreamer waking and attempting to rationalize the validity and totality of his remembered dream content, it seems as if researchers have inadvertently mistaken highly selected dream fragments for the entire manifest dream content, while confusing the secondarily derived, disguised or scrambled dream content with its underlying subclinical or latent primary source.

The Spectrum of Dyslexia 33 pensatory background determinants. These silent determinants were more specifically highlighted by later studies. For example, the crucial role of proprioceptive sensory and related memory signals in selecting appropriate visual-motor tracking and processing reading reflexes was not fully appreciated until the author attempted to dissect and comprehend the mechanisms underlying a fascinating clinical paradox enabling some dyslexics to recognize and understand larger words more easily than smaller words.
