I had raised two interconnected matters in a previous write-up in Current Science. If intensive training in phonics does indeed improve the reading skills of dyslexics (as the experimental work Richards, et al. had shown), would there be lesser incidence of the condition in certain population groups in India since those literate in the major Indian scripts receive intensive phonic training anyway? In what manner can statistics be collected in India so that inter-cultural comparisons can be made with data available in the West?
