Children with Williams syndrome who have be taught reading using a systematic phonics approach both decode and comprehend significantly better than children who have been taught using a whole-word approach.
Síndrome de Williams The Relationship between Phonological Processing and Reading Ability : Evidence from Down Syndrome and Williams Syndrome
The present article presents a review of studies which investigated the relationship between phonological processing skills and the ability to read words in two developmental disorders: Down syndrome
Developmental dyslexia in a regular orthography: Can the reading profile be reduced to strategic control?
The results did not support the view that strategic control has an important role in modulating the types of reading errors made by children with dyslexia, and specific types of errors are a fundamental component of the reading deficit in children who speak a language with regular orthography over and above their reading slowness.
Measuring the Emergence of Specific Abilities in Young Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders: The Example of Early Hyperlexic Traits
A measure of early naming and recognition of letters and numbers in 155 preschoolers with ASD using a sliding window approach combined with a 90th percentile threshold criterion is defined and it is found that 9% of children with ASD showed early hyperlexic traits.
Developmental graphemic buffer dysgraphia in English: A single case study
It is concluded that the most parsimonious account is an impairment at the level of the graphemic buffer and without systematic cognitive neuropsychological investigation, the nature of L.S.’s spelling difficulty would likely have been missed.
Memory Profiles of Down, Williams, and Fragile X Syndromes: Implications for Reading Development
It is suggested that reading instruction be designed to capitalize on relatively stronger memory skills while providing extra support for especially challenging aspects of reading.
Language and Literacy in Turner Syndrome
Language problems can be associated with specific genetic syndromes, such as Klinefelter syndrome and fragile X syndrome, even in the absence of intellectual and developmental disabilities. Turner
Functional basic reading skills in Williams syndrome
Higher reading ability was found to be associated with increased outcomes in adaptive functioning, in particular, Written and Expressive Communication skills and Community Living skills, highlighting the potential benefits of developing reading abilities in WS.
Treatment of reading impairment after stroke
The classification of acquired alexia and the current theory and practice underlying the rehabilitation of this diverse set of disorders are focused on.
A relação entre o processamento fonológico e a habilidade de leitura: evidência da síndrome de Down e da síndrome de Williams
The present article presents a review of studies which investigated the relationship between phonological processing skills and the ability to read words in two developmental disorders: Down syndrome


Lexical skills in Williams Syndrome: a cognitive neuropsychological analysis
Phonological dyslexia and dysgraphia—a developmental analysis
Abstract The present paper presents data from seven developmental dyslexics who exhibit the profile of abilities which can be described as “phonological” dyslexia. Three of the cases, all children,
Cognitive Correlates of Developmental Surface Dyslexia: A Single Case Study.
The results of various tests of associated cognitive abilities conducted on MI suggest that this impairment is not associated either with phonological awareness deficits or with the visual memory problems proposed by Goulandris and Snowling (1991).

Reading Skills in Children with Turner's Syndrome: An Analysis of Hyperlexia
Toward a Rational Taxonomy of the Developmental Dyslexias
In societies where the educational system aims to produce 100 per cent literacy, a substantial minority of children experience great difficulty in learning to read and many never achieve a fluent

Learning to read in Williams syndrome: looking beneath the surface of atypical reading development.
The hypothesis that although reading levels in Williams syndrome depend on phonological skills, the full development of their reading is compromised by weak semantics is supported.
Hyperlexia: Developmental Reading Without Meaning
Children with precocious reading ability despite profound cognitive and language disorders have been described at least as early as 1917, referred to as idiot savants (Parker, 1917; Phillips, 1930)
