Understanding the causes of dyslexia for effective intervention

from Edutopia

For most of the 40-plus years the term "dyslexia" has been in existence — and although the diagnosis has long been considered a "learning disability" — it has been based on comparisons with average readers. Simply put, a child could be diagnosed with dyslexia if he or she shows an IQ in the "normal" range but falls at or below the 10th percentile on standardized reading tests. This cut-off has been arbitrary, often varying from district to district and based on Response to Intervention criteria. As a result, a child who falls at the 12th percentile might be considered a poor reader while a child at the 10th percentile would be diagnosed with dyslexia. more
