DORE talk discuss research critique
I’ve been having an interesting & rather heated discussion on the DORE forums (I’m ‘psyduck’) about the infamous Reynolds et al (2003) paper which caused resignations of 5 academics from the board of Dyslexia (several of whom are teaching me this year), & particularly the Bishop (2007) critique.
I thought I’d link to the whole discussion rather than turning it into a blog post, as there’s not much point in my doing a ramble through the paper as it’s been taken to bits many times over by people better-qualified than me, & I’ve had a few official replies, including from Wynford Dore himself. Feel free to register & jump in.
