It is shown that a simple manipulation of letter spacing substantially improved text reading performance on the fly (without any training) in a large, unselected sample of Italian and French dyslexic children.
The relationship between visuo-spatial attention and nonword reading in developmental dyslexia
The results suggest that focused visuo-spatial attention may be crucial for nonword decoding and a possible explanation based on the role of spatial attention mechanisms in the graphemic parsing process is discussed.

Multisensory Spatial Attention Deficits Are Predictive of Phonological Decoding Skills in Developmental Dyslexia
This study suggests that multisensory “sluggish attention shifting”—related to a temporoparietal dysfunction—selectively impairs the sublexical mechanisms that are critical for reading development and may offer a new approach for early identification and remediation of developmental dyslexia.

Direct empirical evidence is provided in favor of the existence of two mechanisms—one exogenous, or automatic, and one endogenous, or voluntary—that play a role in adjusting the size of the focus of attention.
