Dyslexia & Reading
Dyslexia is a neurological disorder in which there are specific difficulties with word recognition, reading and often short-term memory. Associated anomalies of binocular motor co-ordination contribute to visual problems.
Our work with dyslexics is aimed at:
- Improving methods for assessment and treatment of binocular motor anomalies.
- Improving our understanding of the characteristics and causes of binocular problems in dyslexia.
- Investigating the associations between binocular motor anomalies and deficits in visual short-term memory and attention.
