This is such a wonderful paper, we have to include it in our blog. It's amazing that the very first case of dyslexia in 1896 had the headmaster's note that the boy "would be the smartest lad in the school if the instruction were entirely oral". How often this is true today. Eventually many bright dyslexics learn to read fairly fluently by silent speed reading. Their dyslexia might only be betrayed by the writing disability.
