Visual information processing in dyslexics
MetadataShow full item record
Some percentage of children in most Western countries fail to learn to read and spell at a level expected on the basis of their age and intelligence despite adequate educational opportunities and no obvious brain damage. Such children are commonly referred to as development dyslexics. Extensive research has been conducted in the last thirty years attempting to understand possible causes for such reading failure. In this lecture, Professor Lovegrove outlines some of this research which has concentrated on how dyslexics and normal readers process visual information.
