Detecting the Risk of Dysylexia Before Learning to Read
[Source: Science Daily]
Difficulty recognising words, decoding and writing problems, limitation of reading comprehension… These are the main consequences of dyslexia, a cognitive disorder of neurological origin in which a late diagnosis is the main handicap.
A study led by investigators of the Basque Centre on Cognition, Brain and Language (BCBL) has demonstrated a relationship between the capacity of children to learn how to read and their hearing ability.
This breakthrough, published in Frontiers in Psychology, casts light upon the detection of the disorder and could help establish the risk of dyslexia from an early stage, as well as develop training programmes to palliate reading limitations on a preemptive basis.
