These may be broadly classified into the peripheral and central dyslexias, according to whether the patients have impaired prelexical or impaired lexical/post?lexical processes.

These may be produced by various functional deficits, which may manifest themselves in clinical syndromes of neglect dyslexia and letter-by-letter reading. Detailed study of these syndromes should allow better understanding of how visual lexical access may normally be obtained.
