The Dyslexia Debate

Professor Julian (Joe) Elliott will share with us why his most recent book The Dyslexia Debate (Elliott and Grigorenko, 2014) has caused so much controversy, will summarise the problematics of the term dyslexia, and will propose a where-to-from here alternative.

After providing an operational examination of the dyslexia concept and its relevance for assessment and intervention, the authors concluded the term dyslexia no longer has value for research or practice, recommend discontinuing its use, and replacing it with a more fine-grained account of reading and associated difficulties for the purpose of identification and support of students with reading difficulties. This book continues to generate widespread debate about the use of the term dyslexia, with misunderstanding and misinterpretation of the essential points being made in regard to problems associated with use of a dyslexia label. The purpose of this Seminar is to clarify the key arguments in this debate and to consider its relevance for educational policy and practice.

There will be time for Q&A.
