SIGNOR, Rita de Cassia Fernandes. Developmental dyslexia in a comparative approach: Scoping review of research produced in Brazil and Australia. Rev. psicopedag. [online]. 2020, vol.37, n.112, pp. 74-96. ISSN 0103-8486.

The aim of this scoping review is to present dyslexia intervention proposals, practiced in Brazil and Australia, seeking to analyze possible differences and similarities between the two countries. The criterion for including the works was the research was carried out with human beings; the population is diagnosed with dyslexia; and the study presents a treatment approach. The results show that in the Brazilian studies the phonological remediation approach predominated, and in Australia, case studies predominated. It was observed, however, that the two countries, based on the cognitivist hypothesis of dyslexia, favored aspects of decoding, relativizing broader dimensions of written language. It is concluded, therefore, that there are more similarities than differences related to aspects of clinical treatment.

Keywords : Developmental Dyslexia; Reading; Clinical Intervention.
