Note 17.1 During the time when I was collecting the data for Miles (1993a) I tried to make sure that every individual whom I assessed was accounted for. Between 1972 and 1978 I had collected files on 291 children, of whom

I had adjudged 258 to be typically dyslexic and a further seven to be marginally so. Of the remaining seven, I judged three not to be dyslexic, the remaining 24 being either of limited ability or having problems other than typically dyslexic ones. Of these 24, 12 were male and 12 female, whereas of the 223 children for whom I had full records and whom I judged to be dyslexic the number of males was 182 and the number of females 41, a ratio of 4.4:1 (see Miles, 1993a, Chapter 4 for more details and Miles et al., 1998, for more on gender ratio).
