In his 1982 paper, “Why Orton Was Right,” Dr. Norman Geschwind pointed out that a great many of the observations made by Dr. Orton in 1925 have largely stood the test of time. Geschwind felt that “it is remarkable in retrospect to realize how many times in that very first year he came to choose with remarkable accuracy those aspects of dyslexia that we continue to see as important. . . . ”
