Dyslexia as a Neurodevelopmental Disorder and What Makes It Different from a Chess Disorder


FragaGonzález, Gorka; Karipidis, Iliana I; Tijms, Jurgen (2018). Dyslexia as a Neurodevelopmental Disorder and What Makes It Different from a Chess Disorder. Brain Sciences, 8(10):E189.

Abstract

The convenience of referring to dyslexia as a neurodevelopmental disorder has been repeatedly brought into question. In this opinion article, we argue in favor of the current diagnosis of dyslexia based on the criteria of harm and dysfunction. We discuss the favorable clinical and educational outcomes of a neuroscience-informed approach of dyslexia as a disorder. Furthermore, we discuss insights derived from neuroimaging studies and their importance to address problems related to developmental dyslexia.
