The Study of Dyslexia aims to make a range of research perspectives available and accessible in a single place. Not only does it introduce important research findings that may be unfamiliar to many, it also integrates them in a much-needed synthesis of knowledge from different contributing disciplines. Since everyone prefers to understand what they are doing, this theoretical account of the important areas in dyslexia will be of interest and relevance to the many professionals practising in this field.
