The double-deficit theory of dyslexia believes that a deficit in two essential skills leads to the lowest level of reading performances, which is the most severe form of dyslexia.
The two essential reading skills are:
- Phonological processing. It enables a person to identify and manipulate sounds in speech.
- Rapid automatized naming. People who have this skill can translate visual information whether of objects, letters, or pictures into a phonological code.
