Orthographic learning in dyslexic Spanish children.
(Wed 23 of July, 2014)
Authors: Suárez-Coalla P, Ramos S, Alvarez-Cañizo M, Cuetos F Abstract Reading fluency is one of the basic processes of learning to read. Children begin to develop fluency when they are able to form orthographic representations of words, which provide direct, smooth, and fast reading.

Evaluations of a bullying case involving a victim with autism spectrum disorder

Observers may view an ASD diagnosis as a reasonable explanation for behaving inappropriately a...MedWorm Sponsor Message: Find the best Christmas Sales, Boxing Day Sales and January Sales here.
