Developmental trajectory of number acuity reveals a severe impairment in developmental dyscalculia
Developmental dyscalculia is a learning disability that affects the acquisition of knowledge about numbers and arithmetic. It is widely assumed that numeracy is rooted on the "number sense", a coreExpand

Action Video Games Make Dyslexic Children Read Better
Learning to read is extremely difficult for about 10% of children; they are affected by a neurodevelopmental disorder called dyslexia [1, 2]. The neurocognitive causes of dyslexia are still hotlyExpand

Extra-large letter spacing improves reading in dyslexia
Although the causes of dyslexia are still debated, all researchers agree that the main challenge is to find ways that allow a child with dyslexia to read more words in less time, because reading moreExpand

The gradient of visual attention in developmental dyslexia
This study investigated the gradient of visual attention in 21 children, 11 children with specific reading disorder (SRD) or dyslexia and 10 children with normal reading skills. We recorded reactionExpand

A Causal Link between Visual Spatial Attention and Reading Acquisition
Reading is a unique, cognitive human skill crucial to life in modern societies, but, for about 10% of the children, learning to read is extremely difficult. They are affected by a neurodevelopmentalExpand

Multisensory Spatial Attention Deficits Are Predictive of Phonological Decoding Skills in Developmental Dyslexia
TLDR
Dyslexics with poor nonword decoding accuracy showed a slower time course of visual and auditory spatial attention compared with both chronological age and reading level controls. Expand

The relationship between visuo-spatial attention and nonword reading in developmental dyslexia
Focused visuo-spatial attention was studied in 10 developmental dyslexic children with impaired nonword reading, 10 dyslexic children with intact nonword reading, and 12 normally reading children.Expand

Automatic and voluntary focusing of attention
In this study, we investigate whether attentional focusing, like attentional orienting, comprises two independent mechanisms. We provide direct empirical evidence in favor of the existence of twoExpand

Auditory and visual automatic attention deficits in developmental dyslexia.
Several studies have provided evidence for a phonological deficit in developmental dyslexia. However, recent studies provide evidence for a multimodal temporal processing deficit in dyslexia. InExpand

Visual-Spatial Attention in Developmental Dyslexia
Orienting and focusing of visual attention are two processes strictly involved in reading. They were studied in a group of dyslexic children and normal readers. Shifting of attention by bothExpand
