This paper reviews a body of prominent theories of automaticity in developmental dyslexia. The first part of the review considers the relationship between dyslexia and rapid automatic naming and fluency. Additional theoretical and empirical advances are suggested to this already strong research base. In particular, there is a need is for experimental work elucidating the nature of naming speed deficits and providing independent evidence of the automaticity of rapid naming. The second part of… CONTINUE READING
