The SAGE Handbook of Dyslexia is a comprehensive overview of a complex field. It is a rich, critical assessment of past and present theory and current research, which also looks to the future. The editors have brought together key figures from the international academic world - both researchers and practitioners - to examine the relationships between theoretical paradigms, research and practice, and to map new areas of research. The book has 5 main sections: - neurological/genetic perspectives - cognitive and learning perspectives - educational influences - beyond school - international perspectives.Additional comparisons on verbal and nonverbal ability tests are reported for 4th and 5th grade. ... The key questions concerned the stability of the subgroups over one year, whether PDs would become more common than SDs, and ... was the case at 3rd grade, when the dominant pattern was a mixed profile, deficient on both exception words and pseudowords. ... deficits are eventually able to work around their word recognition difficulties, and eke out a larger sight word vocabulary.
