Abstract

This article presents a discussion about relationship with Specific Language Impairment (SLI) and Developmental Dyslexia: peculiarities of the language development and the phonological deficit hypothesis of Dyslexia. The components of phonological acquisition which are investigated to dyslexic children are speech production, phonological and meta-phonological abilities, relationship between phonology and the development of reading skills. Independently that Specific Language Impairment and Dyslexia may look similar in linguistic behavior there are the different basic language causes underlying of the different disorders. The general opinion of this article is that Specific Language Impairment is not Developmental Dyslexia.
