Purpose The purpose of this clinical forum is to provide a broad survey of up-to-date, evidence-based information about dyslexia that can be readily applied to clinical practice by speech-language pathologists. Topics include (a) theoretical and clinical frameworks for understanding dyslexia in relation to other language-based communication disorders, (b) the neurobiological basis of dyslexia, (c) the current state of dyslexia legislation, (d) issues around identification of dyslexia, (e) and evidence-based reviews of instruction for reading and writing.

Conclusion Though there have been numerous papers written on the topic of dyslexia, this clinical forum is unique in that it is the only combination of articles to focus on dyslexia with the speech-language pathologist in mind.
