 Visual Defects can Help Pinpoint Possible Dyslexia in Kids

A new study published in the journal Current Biology suggests that dyslexia can be detected early in children as they also suffer from visual defects.

Dyslexia is a development reading disorder in which the victims are not able to recognize certain symbols and is one of the most common causes of reading and writing difficulties in the world.

However researchers led by Andrea Facoetti from University of Padova said that the condition cannot be treated just as a reading disorder as it also affects the children's visual attention.

Writing in their report, the researchers said that new treatments can be followed to help children deal with dyslexia. "Because recent studies show that specific pre-reading programs can improve reading abilities, children at risk for dyslexia could be treated with preventive remediation programs of visual spatial attention before they learn to read", the researchers said.
