A lack of reading fluency is the most persistent symptom in dyslexia. A recent theoretical account for dyslexia proposes a failure to integrate letters and speech sounds as the core deficit underlying reading fluency problems. Gorka Fraga González combines this theoretical framework with recent advances in our knowledge of the neural networks involved in reading. The aim is to identify factors involved in the failure to develop a functional reading network as well as factors of treatment success in addressing the notorious ‘fluency barrier’ in dyslexia.
