Abstract

The developmental dyslexia studies in alphabetic languages usually from the perspectives of cognition, neurobiology and genetics. Since the Chinese language is characterized as a logographic writing system with deep orthography, which is different from alphabetic languages, whether the findings in alphabetic languages are coincident in Chinese remains a question. By comparing theories in the causes of developmental dyslexia in alphabetic language with that in Chinese language, the paper reviews the studies on development dyslexia in L1 Chinese learners and finally reach the conclusion that although developmental dyslexia in Chinese language have been studied from cognition, neurobiology and genetics, which is coincident with those of alphabetic languages, there exits some differences in minor parts of the theories.
