Dyslexia and "inner voice"

Postby SteveA » Mon Mar 01, 2010 7:25 am

I saw this news report about a British man, who is himself dyslexic, who has a novel theory about how dyslexia works.

He was inspired to think about this noticing that his wife can read without moving her lips of subvocalizing or making any kind of movement that is like speaking. It had never occurred to him that there was a way of reading that involves just taking text of the page without speaking or hearing it.

He's gone on to make a model of dyslexia that is based on dyslexics not having an "inner voice" with which to read the text.

This reminds me of Chris' comments about reading (I read in a similar way to Chris, I guess -- that is, I can read text from a page pretty much as if I was speaking it spontaneously.) And also, his comments about lacking an "inner nose".
