The Study of Dyslexia in Czechoslovakia
Difficulties in reading, writing, and spelling are as old as written language itself. These disorders, however, were not studied or treated in Czechoslovakia until the last century when the educational ideas formulated by my countryman John Amos Comenius (Jan Amos Komenský), emphasizing the right to education began to gain ground. Since that time, disorders in written and spoken language have been subjects of intensive research and have aroused a great deal of public interest.
