Beschreibung

According to International Educational Statistics (2008), there are total of 654.9 million school-age children in the world. If dyslexia affects 10-15% of these youth (Fletcher et al. 2007), this translates to approximately 65-98 million students with difficulties in reading and writing. The EU strategic plan for education (2010) recognises the need for EU citizens to speak a foreign language. As such, foreign language courses are introduced on an obligatory basis at the primary level of education. Dyslexic students are not exempt from this regulation, and, thus, are confronted with different language systems that must be mastered. The difficulty here escalates if the systems differ significantly in their levels of orthographic transparency.Reading and writing are operationalised by the same biological functions that are defined by the universal perspective. However, language systems differ in terms of their transparency; for example, English and French are considered opaque scripts, whereas Spanish and Italian are described as transparent orthographies. These differences are discussed in this book as part of the language specific perspective, which can, in turn, raise questions such as: "e;Is a dyslexic student equally impaired in any language they study?"e; and "e;Is the type of difficulty primarily dependent on the language system or is it rather a dyslexia syndrome?"e; This volume provides answers through a synthesis of research on reading difficulties in first and foreign languages and existing taxonomies of dyslexia sub-types.
