The issue 議題

Dyslexia is a complex disorder involving neural, cognitive and genetic factors. Children with dyslexia face huge difficulty learning to read despite adequate schooling, age, normal IQ and visual acuity. Disentangling cause(s) from effect in dyslexia has been difficult, since deficits in various factors might result from reduced reading in children with dyslexia. Intervention studies provide the strongest test of causation, but designing effective intervention strategies has been a major challenge.

Common interventional approaches: 1) Often focused on single factors (e.g., phonological awareness, word reading practice, etc) 2) Often labor-intensive 3) Effectiveness often challenged. Other interventional approaches are effective but may not be ‘central’ to the problem

The solution 解決方案

A multi-component approach to intervention

  • Focused on visual perceptual skills, a reading-related bottleneck that is relatively easy to train

  • Mixed visual, visuoauditory and visuomotor skills with other cognitive demands;

Individualized progress

  • Allowed flexible improvement of individuals based on their abilities

Computerized and mobile training

  • Assisted with some face-to-face training

Motivated learning

  •  gamified learning context
