Listening to Dyslexics: My Simple Clinical Path Proved Key to Discovery

  • Harold N. Levinson


When initially starting my research from ground zero, I instinctively determined that the best way—and perhaps the only way—to fully understand dyslexics, and so their disorder, is to listen patiently and carefully to their many and varied symptoms, including what has been reported by their parents, teachers, and testers. Then keenly observe their difficulties in performing reading, writing, etc. psychological and neurological tasks. And analyze everything you’ve obtained for important clues—and correlations—so as to find all of this disorder’s key characteristics as well as their underlying determining origins.
