Abstract In the studies reported in this volume, 39 boys classified as suffering from "specific reading disability" were compared with control groups as regards their performance in a battery of psychological tests.

Indeed, one is more surprised by the paucity of other neurological findings in the patients examined, whether this be a history of birth trauma, delayed maturation of laterality, or more overt findings. It is perhaps of relevance in this regard that the study was restricted to patients between the ages of 10 and 14. The restriction to males may also have excluded some genetic subgroups, eg, the dyslexic girl with ambidexterity, catoptrographia, and a positive family history.
