Abstract

Developmental dyslexia and developmental dysgraphia are learning disabilities of reading and writing arising during the normal course of development despite adequate learning, instructional opportunities, and intelligence. Research has yielded much information on the different ways in which differences in abilities are seen in children's reading and writing behaviors. There are different theories of the causes and consequences of dyslexia and dysgraphia. Recent research in genetics, brain imaging and brain processing, and behavioral sciences supports a link between reading and writing skills and specific linguistic skills. This research is informing intervention and instructional treatments for children with and without disabilities.
