Dyslexia 'subtypes'

I was in a meeting yesterday with an Ed Psych who kept mentioning the 'subtypes' of dyslexia - phonetic, dyseidetic (sp?), and mixed. These are terms I never hear anymore in the SLP world and I tend to think of them as belonging to an outdated view of dyslexia.  I would love to hear what others think.  Is this idea of subtypes supported by research at all? Thanks in advance for your input!
