Julian Elliots position is that dyslexia is not a single condition and so can not be diagnosed as a single condition.
His position is that many medical cognitive conditions cause the dyslexic symptoms, which has been demonstrated by much of the international dyslexia research since 2005.

Even in his research paper
"Does Dyslexia Exist" 2009
http://tinyurl.com/ycnht9h
he does not deny that dyslexia exists more that more research needs to be done to fully understand the neurological cognitive issues or deficits that cause the dyslexic symptoms

dysTalk

This talk (from Professor John Stein) does a good job in refuting the argument that Julian Elliot makes: http://dystalk.com/talks/90-why-dyslexia-does-exist

FYI: Dyslexic people are visual, multi-dimensional thinkers. We are intuitive and highly creative, and excel at hands-on learning. Because we think in pictures, it is sometimes hard for us to understand letters, numbers, symbols, and written words.
