1. What is the core concept behind the Auditory Perceptual deficit hypothesis?

  • Dyslexia is caused by a deficit with rapid auditory temporal processing; however this finding has not been replicated and may be indicative of broader issues
  • Motor control is associated with dyslexia causing problems with automatisation and so reading fluency (cerebellar functioning). However, most likely just due to comorbidity rather than an underlying cause

2. Are reading skills and the language (phonological) skills that underlie them highly heritable?

  • Yes
  • No

3. In a study by White et al (2006), was there a significant relationship between visual measures and reading ability?

  • No
  • Yes

4. Where are difficulties found in reading in surface dyslexia

  • Difficulty reading via sight-word route

5. In a longitudinal family risk study by Snowling, Gallagher & Frith (2003), what was the main finding?

  • Nondyslexics not at risk performed at the same rate as dyslexics on phonological awareness in adulthood; suggest a broader phenotype
  • Nondyslexics at risk performed at the same rate as dyslexics on phonological awareness in adulthood; suggest a broader phenotype
  • Nondyslexics at risk performed at the same rate as dyslexics on reading fluency in adulthood; suggest a broader phenotype
  • Nondyslexics not at risk performed at the same rate as dyslexics on reading fluency in adulthood; suggest a broader phenotype
