Description

This study explores similarities and differences between Greek dyslexic and nondyslexic students in the linguistic and cognitive processes involved in their writing and the effect of using English as a foreign language on their writing profiles. Dyslexic students deficient, low-level linguistic skills seem to have an effect on their pausing and revision behavior, and they also seem to be lagging rather than deviant in the lower-level and higher-level processes involved in writing.
