Dr. Orton’s Notebook

Strephosymbolia: A “Temporal Cross Section” of the theory of
reading disabilities as of July 1925

This is a facsimile of a personal notebook by Dr. Samuel T. Orton, in his own hand and illustrated by his own neurological drawings. The Notebook contains seminal ideas more fully developed in his later work.

Dr. Orton’s Notebook is enriched by the addition of original comments by Albert M. Galaburda, M.D. and Drake D. Duane, M.D, both distinguished contributors to our current understanding of dyslexia; their comments provide valuable insights.

The original Notebook was a gift to the Academy by Lucia R. Karnes, Ph.D., a co-founder and Honorary Fellow of the Academy. Its publication was made possible by the Ruth and Louis S. Harris Family Foundation.

Attractively produced and 32 pages in length, the price of the Notebook is $25 (which includes handling and shipping.) Proceeds from its sale will be used to support the Academy’s Library in Amenia, NY, which is open for use by Academy members.

Dyslexia Over the Lifespan:
“A Fifty-Five year Longitudinal Study”

Margaret Byrd Rawson

This longitudinal study of 56 boys, both dyslexic and nondyslexic, provides an answer which contradicts the old assumption that dyslexics are incapable of performing well in areas requiring language ability. For approximately 55 years, Mrs. Rawson has followed the educational and career development of boys from a private school, which was one of the first to have a school-wide program to detect and treat developmental language disabilities. In her own words, “Behind each statistic there is a person, and it is with these persons that such a study as this concerns itself.”

The price of the book is $25 (which includes handling and shipping). Proceeds from this sale will be used to support the Academy’s Library in Amenia, NY, which is open for use by Academy members.
