Publication Summary

• The efficiency with which sounds can be activated from letters • crucial for fluent reading (decoding) • develops over a prolonged period (result of brain maturation & reading experience) • Lack of automatic LSI hypothesised to be a proximal cause of dyslexia • Even when individuals with dyslexia have seemingly learned L-S associations there remains a persisting lack of automaticity such that they are unable to retrieve or apply their knowledge of lettersound associations quickly during reading
