In this review we focus on the developmental disorders of dyslexia (a disorder of reading) and dysgraphia (a disorder of writing), considering their commonalities and differences with a view to reflecting on the theoretical implications. Interest in dysgraphia was stimulated by the distinction between phonological and surface dyslexia (Castles and Coltheart, 1993), which claimed that orthographic problems (spelling) were separable from phonological reading problems. While this distinction has… Expand
The Difference between Developmental Dyslexia and Dysgraphia: Recent Neurobiological Evidence
Developmental dyslexia and developmental dysgraphia are considered to be distinct learning difficulties that affect the child's ability to learn. Dyslexia affects all aspects of written language,Expand
Cognitive Profiles of Developmental Dysgraphia
TLDR
Findings demonstrate that a more fine-grained diagnostic view on developmental dysgraphia, which takes the underlying cognitive profiles into account, might be advantageous for optimizing the outcome of individuum-centered intervention programs. Expand
Dyslexic children fail to comply with the rhythmic constraints of handwriting.
TLDR
It is proposed that the link between handwriting and reading/language deficits is mediated by rhythm, as both reading (which is grounded on language) and handwriting are ruled by principles of rhythmic organization. Expand
Crispiani The phonological mistake and 5 D paradigm
In the first part of this article I present a background in scientific studies on dyslexia, from cognitive science to the neuropedagogical perspective. In this investigation the analysis of mentalExpand
Imprints of Dyslexia: Implicit Learning and the Cerebellum
Dyslexia, a learning disability affecting reading and spelling, occurs in 3-10% of the general population. For many people diagnosed early in life the symptoms of dyslexia persist into adulthoodExpand
Devil in the details? Developmental dyslexia and visual long-term memory for details
TLDR
It is revealed that while the overall amount of LTM errors was comparable between groups, dyslexic children exhibited a greater portion of detail-related errors, which suggests that not only phonological, but also general visual resolution deficits in LTM may play an important role in developmental dyslexia.

Reading and Dyslexia: The Functional Coordination Framework
The Functional Coordination approach of reading acquisition claims that beginning readers draw on established cognitive functions that are (1) recruited, (2) modified, and (3) coordinated to create aExpand
Handwriting Delay in Dyslexia: Children at the End of Primary School Still Make Numerous Short Pauses When Producing Letters
TLDR
An analysis of the legibility and fluency of handwritten letters, supplemented by an assessment of motor skills revealed a delay in motor skills, as well as in letter legibility, letter production duration, and the number of short pauses made during letter production in the children with dyslexia. Expand
Developmental Dysgraphia as a Reading System and Transfer Problem: A Case Study
TLDR
It is suggested that limitations in the processing of the reading system were responsible for the lack of an extensive set of induced position-sensitive sublexical representations that are contextually dependent, which would have serious consequences for transfer to spelling. Expand
The Role of the Cerebellum in Developmental Dyslexia
Developmental dyslexia is a neurobiological developmental disorder characterized by difficulty learning to read in the context of normal intelligence and sufficient educational opportunity. InExpand

On subtypes of developmental dyslexia: evidence from processing time and accuracy scores.
TLDR
Data suggest that developmental dyslexia could be largely accounted for by an underlying phonological impairment, and examines the reliability of these subtypes across different measures of phonological and orthographic skills. Expand
Dyslexia, Learning, and the Brain
Dyslexia research has made dramatic progress since the mid-1980s. Once discounted as a "middle-class myth," dyslexia is now the subject of a complex -- and confusing -- body of theoretical andExpand

TLDR
The results of these studies suggest that the pathophysiology of developmental dyslexia is more complex than originally thought, extending beyond the classically defined language areas of the brain. Expand
Varieties of developmental dyslexia
TLDR
Models of the normal adult reading process and of the development of reading in children are used to provide a framework for considering the issues and indicate that there are at least two varieties of developmental dyslexia. Expand

TLDR
The automaticity/ cerebellar deficit framework provides an explicit demonstration that it is possible to explain motor, speed and phonological deficits within a unified account, integrating previously opposed approaches. Expand

TLDR
This study provides partial support for the presence of motor problems in dyslexic children, but does not support the hypothesis that a cerebellar dysfunction is the cause of their phonological and reading impairment. Expand

TLDR
The present framework suggests three phases, corresponding to the acquisition of logographic, alphabetic, and, finally, orthographic skills, which are driven by a certain opposition between reading and writing processes. Expand
