Usha Goswami on Dyslexia - Dictionary of Arguments
Slater I 143
Dyslexia/Goswami: Children with developmental dyslexia, across languages, turn out to be rather insensitive to perceiving amplitude envelope rise times, and behaviorally this leads to impairments in perceiving speech rhythm and syllable stress, as well as to impairments in phonological awareness (Goswami, 2011, for recent review)(1). Indeed, rise time peaks as the vowel is produced, hence rise time provides a non-speech specific cue to the onset-rime segmentation of the syllable (Scott, 1998)(2).
