Reading and writing skills are fundamental to literacy. Consequently the processes involved in reading and writing and the failure to acquire these skills as well as the loss of once well-developed reading and writing abilities have been the targets of intense research activity involving professionals from a variety of disciplines such as neuropsychology cognitive psychology psycholinguistics and education. The findings that have emanated from this research are most often written up in a lingua that is specific to the particular discipline involved and are published in specialized journals. This generally leaves the expert in one area almost totally unaware of what may be taking place in any area other than his own.
