Recent theory and clinical insight have emphasized the linguistic aspects of reading and reading disorders. As a result, some speech-language pathologists are playing a more integral role in the identification, assessment, and remediation of reading disorders. This paper discusses the linguistic basis of reading and reading problems, and provides some guidance to speech-language pathologists on how they can use their knowledge of language to deal more effectively with developmental reading disorders.
