Dyscravia: Voicing substitution dysgraphia

  title={Dyscravia: Voicing substitution dysgraphia},
  author={A. Gvion and N. Friedmann},
We report a new type of dysgraphia, which we term dyscravia. The main error type in dyscravia is substitution of the target letter with a letter that differs only with respect to the voicing feature, such as writing "coat" for "goat", and "vagd" for "fact". Two Hebrew-speaking individuals with acquired dyscravia are reported, TG, a man aged 31, and BG, a woman aged 66. Both had surface dysgraphia in addition to their dyscravia. To describe dyscravia in detail, and to explore the rate and types… Expand
Vowel letter dyslexia
Vowel letter dyslexia provides cognitive neuropsychological evidence for the separate processing of vowels and consonants in the sublexical reading route. Expand
Vowel dyslexia in Turkish: A window to the complex structure of the sublexical route
We report on developmental vowel dyslexia, a type of dyslexia that selectively affects the reading aloud of vowel letters. We identified this dyslexia in 55 Turkish-readers aged 9–10, and made anExpand
Patterns of visual dyslexia.
This study reports two Hebrew-speaking individuals with acquired visual dyslexia who made predominantly visual errors in reading, in all positions of the target words, and suggests that these two patterns stem from two different deficits - KD has letter identity visual Dyslexia, which results from a deficit in abstract letter identification in the orthographic-visual analysis system, yielding erroneous letter identities.

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. Expand
35 .Types of developmental dyslexia
To the best of our knowledge, the first person to suggest that there are different types of developmental dyslexia was the educational psychologist Helmer Myklebust. In Myklebust (1965), he suggestedExpand
Dissociations between developmental dyslexias and attention deficits
Results indicate that visuospatial attention deficits do not underlie developmental dyslexia and/or attention deficits, and dyslexias that may be thought to have an attentional basis dissociated from attention. Expand
Developmental attentional dyslexia
The main results are that almost all migrations preserve the relative position of the migrating letter within the word, indicating that the between-word position can be impaired while the within- word position encoding remains intact. Expand

A decade long of studies conducted in one Virtual Reality Laboratory aimed at better understanding the correlation between technology-more specifically, 3D Immersive Virtual Reality (3D IVR)-and the accelerated improvement in a variety of cognitive skills suggest that advanced educational technologies indeed generate an accelerated enhancement in a wide range of skills that the natural environment alone cannot account for.

De Grafemische Buffer: Aspecten van een Spellingstoornis
Een schrijfstoornis die de laatste tijd in de literatuur meer aandacht gekregen heeft is de stoornis in de grafemische buffer. Caramazza e.a. (1987) geven de eerste uitgebreide beschrijving van eenExpand


Letter position dysgraphia
The article describes AE, a Hebrew-speaking individual with acquired dysgraphia, who makes mainly letter position errors in writing. His dysgraphia resulted from impairment in the graphemic buffer,Expand
Acquired Dysgraphia in Alphabetic and Stenographic Handwriting
Analysis of the unusual case of AZO, who professionally used handwritten shorthand writing, and became dysgraphic after a stroke, showed that the same variables affected response accuracy in alphabetic and shorthand writing; and, the same error types were observed in all tasks in the two types of writing. Expand
The case of a patient who recovered from a clinical picture of fluent aphasia to selective dysgraphia is reported, supporting the notion that the consonant-vowel status is a property of graphemic representations, and is compatible with that a common buffer is involved in spelling and reading.

Surface Dyslexia and Surface Dysgraphia: Treatment Studies and Their Theoretical Implications
We report studies of a patient with acquired surface dyslexia and dysgraphia. His reading impairment was treated using the methods previously reported to be successful for surface dyslexia by ByngExpand
Developmental letter position dyslexia.
The findings indicate that individuals with developmental LPD have a deficit in the letter position encoding function of the orthographic visual analyser, which leads to underspecification of letter position within words. Expand
Selective impairment of the Graphemic Buffer in acquired dysgraphia: A case study
The case of an Italian dysgraphic patient, who showed a deficit of both written and oral spelling capacities, without significant differences between words and nonwords, is reported, consistent with the hypothesis that S.E.'s spelling disorder results from selective damage of the Graphemic Buffer.

Selective Uppercase Dysgraphia with Loss of Visual Imagery of Letter Forms: A Window on the Organization of Graphomotor Patterns
It is proposed that the patient's impairment was at the stage where selection of the specific graphomotor pattern for each letter is made and that the apparent selective disruption of capital case was due to a greater stroke similarity among letters belonging to the same case. Expand
Consonant-Vowel Encoding and Orthosyllables in a Case of Acquired Dysgraphia
An acquired dysgraphic patient - BA - is described who produces a large proportion of nonword responses. It is shown that single letter substitutions tend to preserve consonant-vowel status and thatExpand
Developmental surface dysgraphia: A case report
The spelling performance of a 17-year-old developmental dysgraphic. K. M., is compared to that of T. P. (Hatfield & Patterson, 1983), an acquired dysgraphic. Both make errors which are phonologicallyExpand
Preserved orthographic length and transitional probabilities in written spelling in a case of acquired dysgraphia
A patient with acquired dysgraphia, DS, who has intact oral spelling but severely impaired written spelling is presented, indicating that DS has intact graphemic representations, and that her errors are due to a deficit in letter shape assignment. Expand
