In the beginning, there were institutions...thoughts on institutions, economics and other random topics.
I found the article neither new nor contrary to existing information. In fact I found it to be a large waste of money and similar to an incomplete definition that was in general usage of dyslexia being defined as reading skills lower than what would be expected compared to a person's IQ.If reading skills tracked IQ in dyslexics then there would be no difference between dyslexics and non dyslexics and we could conclude dyslexia does not exist.
John Hayes, you are really a one-trick pony, aren't you? Dyslexia is not a vision problem.Dr. Bang, I highly recommend the recently published "Reading in the Brain", by Stanislas Dehaene. WaPo review here http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/11/25/AR2009112502775.html and Jonah Leher's review here http://scienceblogs.com/cortex/2009/11/the_reading_brain_1.php.Dehaene's research is on the neurocognitive elements of reading and he covers the development of alphabets and writing systems. He includes a chapter on dyslexia.
