Inhaltsangabe: Understanding the precursors and early indicators of dyslexia is key to early identification and effective intervention. Now there's a single research volume that brings together the very latest knowledge on the earliest stages of dyslexia and the diverse genetic, neurobiological, and cognitive factors that may contribute to it. Based on findings first reported at the Dyslexia Foundation's 12th Extraordinary Brain Symposium, this landmark volume collects cutting-edge dyslexia research from the worlds foremost experts on this complex disorder, as well as insights from experts newly interested in applying their innovative techniques to dyslexia research. 40+ international contributors from multiple disciplines present groundbreaking research on:

  • neurolinguistic and neurophysiological precursors of dyslexia
  • new techniques and technologies—ranging from molecular genetics, to neuroimaging, to cognitive neuroscience
  • genetic influences on reading and reading disability
  • the magnocellular theory of dyslexia
  • anatomical risk factors for reading and language disorders
  • subcortical auditory function and how it contributes to variance in reading ability
  • cortical phenotypes associated with developmental dyslexia
  • the impact of atypical auditory processing in infancy on later language and reading skills
  • the interplay among environment, brain, and behavior while children are developing reading skills
  • phonological processing difficulties and their effect on later literacy outcomes
  • the latest techniques in pediatric neuroimaging
  • and more

Each of the book's four sections has a helpful integrative introduction. And to help readers shape the course of future dyslexia studies, a concluding chapter distills the key themes discussed at the symposium and examines specific recommendations for further research on the genetics, neurobiology, and behavior of dyslexia.


An important volume that will be cited and quoted in the literature for years to come, this book sheds new light on the precursors and early indicators of dyslexia—and will provide a strong foundation for tomorrow's innovative interventions.


With contributions by well-known experts from the dyslexia field, including

  • Nadine Gaab
  • John Stein
  • Elena L. Grigorenko
  • Fumiko Hoeft
  • Cyril Pernet
  • Cecilia Marino
  • Ben Maassen
  • Nina Kraus, and
  • Bruce D. McCandliss

PLUS additional experts from related fields, including

  • neuroimaging (P. Ellen Grant)
  • molecular genetics and anatomy (Richard S. Nowakowski and Joseph J. LoTurco)
  • animal models (Glenn D. Rosen)
  • and more!

About the Author:
Dr. Hayes is Associate Professor and Clinical Director of Clinical Foundations at Florida State University College of Medicine in Tallahassee, FL.

Dr. Herbert is Assistant Professor, Neurology (Pediatric) at Harvard Medical School.

Dr. Benasich is Professor of Neuroscience and Director of Infancy Studies at the Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience. Her research focuses on the study of early neural processes necessary for typical and disordered language development. Specifically, she studies the development of temporally bounded sensory information processing (shown to be a major predictor of language impairment and dyslexia), the neural substrates that support these developing abilities and the relations seen with emerging language and cognitive abilities from infancy through early childhood.

Dr. Fitch received her B.S. from Duke University and her Ph.D. in biobehavioral sciences (concentration in developmental psychobiology) from The University of Connecticut. Her research centers on understanding how the disruption of early brain development underlies subsequent cognitive disabilities, with a particular focus on risk factors for language-relevant skills. Topics of research include animal models of brain damage typical of premature and term birth insult, as well as animal models for genetic risk factors associated with cognitive disability.
