The visual attention (VA) span is defined as the amount of distinct visual elements which can be processed in parallel in a multi-element array. Both recent empirical data and theoretical accounts suggest that a VA span deficit might contribute to developmental dyslexia, independently of a phonological disorder. In this study, this hypothesis was assessed(More)
There is strong converging evidence suggesting that developmental dyslexia stems from a phonological processing deficit. However, this hypothesis has been challenged by the widely admitted heterogeneity of the dyslexic population, and by several reports of dyslexic individuals with no apparent phonological deficit. In this paper, we discuss the hypothesis(More)
3 Abstract The present study describes two French teenagers with developmental reading and writing impairments whose performance was compared to that of chronological age and reading-age matched non-dyslexic participants. Laurent conforms to the pattern of phonological dyslexia: he exhibits a poor performance in pseudo-word reading and spelling, produces(More)
This article reports three experiments investigating the use of analogies in spelling acquisition. French children spelled pseudowords to dictation, some of which were phonological neighbours of words with uncommon endings (e.g., /daby/ derived from " début " /deby/). A more frequent use of these uncommon graphemes in neighbour pseudowords than in control(More)
The general aim of this study is to contribute to a better understanding of the cognitive processes that underpin skilled adult spelling. More specifically, it investigates the influence of lexical neighbors on pseudo-word spelling with the goal of providing a more detailed account of the interaction between lexical and sublexical sources of knowledge in(More)
Lexical orthography acquisition is currently described as the building of links between the visual forms and the auditory forms of whole words. However, a growing body of data suggests that a motor component could further be involved in orthographic acquisition. A few studies support the idea that reading plus handwriting is a better lexical orthographic(More)

Theory The question of how we acquire lexical orthographic knowledge is crucial to better understand the cognitive impairments which would be related to developmental dyslexia/dysorthographia. The self-teaching hypothesis (Share 1999, 2008) suggested that most lexical orthographic knowledge is acquired incidentally during reading through phonological(More)
