Thursday, August 15, 2002, (13.30 - 14.45)

 

One of the aims of this conference is to present the latest scientific and clinical views on dyslexia and make an overview of
existing policies in European countries in relation to identification and diagnostic assessment.  Policies from the US will also
be presented.   Their objective is to clarify existing agreements about the concept and policies for identification between
leading organizations and delegates from different countries.  A document reflecting this agreement will be helpful for state
