The SAGE Handbook of Dyslexia is a comprehensive overview of a complex field. It is a rich, critical assessment of past and present theory and current research, which also looks to the future. The editors have brought together key figures from the international academic world - both researchers and practitioners - to examine the relationships between theoretical paradigms, research and practice, and to map new areas of research.

Divided into five parts, the book covers:
  • Neurological/genetic perspectives
  • Cognitive and learning perspectives
  • Educational influences
  • Beyond school
  • International perspectives
