For this issue of the Examiner, we celebrate IDA’s 70th anniversary with a look back at the evolution of the term dyslexia. Read on for an excerpt pulled from the book Dyslexia…Samuel T. Orton and His Legacy, which was published 20 years ago in honor of IDA’s 50th anniversary.

For the current definition of dyslexia, as recognized by IDA, we invite you to visit our Definition of Dyslexia page.
