Our spelling training software recodes words into multisensory representations comprising visual and auditory codes. These codes represent information about letters and syllables of a word. An enhanced version, developed for this study, contains an additional phonological code and an improved word selection controller relying on a phoneme-based student model. We investigated the spelling behavior of children by means of learning curves based on log-file data of the previous and the enhanced… Expand
Not just playing with clay: symbol mastery for spelling and word comprehension
TLDR
The symbol mastery program was trialed with four dyslexic students in one-to-one tutorial sessions after completing a specialized program and showed that the program helped with improving spelling scores and increased confidence and willingness to attempt to spell words. Expand
Paired Associate Learning Tasks and their Contribution to Reading Skills.
TLDR
The main result was that the children at risk for reading difficulties had lower performance on both PAL tasks, and the BBG was a significant predictor for both word reading and pseudo-word decoding, whereas the FLLT-only for word reading. Expand
The Efficacy of a Computer Program for Increasing Phonemic Awareness and Decoding Skills in a Primary School Setting for Children with Reading Difficulties
This paper addresses a gap in research regarding the efficacy of software programs to help children with reading difficulties. Forty-two children aged 5-13 years identified as poor readersExpand
A study of computer-based learning model for students with dyslexia
Dyslexia is one of the most common Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLDs) in the world. Students with dyslexia have poor fluency in reading, writing, spelling, speech, short-term memory, and alsoExpand
Teaching compound words to a spelling-disabled child via Smart Notebook Technology: Α case study approach
TLDR
The case-study examines the effectiveness of training of morphological structure on the spelling of compounds by a spelling-disabled primary school student and finds instructional gains were statistically significant, and generalized substantially to untrained words and pseudowords in terms of structure and common stems.

Behavioral and Neurocognitive Evaluation of a Web-Platform for Game-Based Learning of Orthography and Numeracy
Recent years have seen a considerable increase in informal educational environments complementing formal educational settings such as schools. In this chapter, we will report results on the efficacyExpand
Investigating the Effects of Modality and Multimedia on the Learning Performance of College Students With Dyslexia
There has been a lack of research on how people with individual differences learn with multimedia materials, in particular with regard to individuals with dyslexia. Dyslexia is a learning disabilityExpand
Evaluation of a Computer-Based Training Program for Enhancing Arithmetic Skills and Spatial Number Representation in Primary School Children
TLDR
Compared to the group without training and the group with an alternative training (spelling training group), the children of the Calcularis group demonstrated a higher benefit in subtraction and number line estimation with medium to large effect sizes. Expand
How to train your syllable stress awareness – A digital game-based intervention for German dyslexic children
Developmental dyslexia is one of the most frequent learning disorders and affects 4-10% of the German population. The learning disorder affects educational, personal, and social development ofExpand

Computer-based multisensory learning in children with developmental dyslexia.
TLDR
According to the retrieval structure model, multi-sensory training using visual and auditory cues enhances writing performance in children with developmental dyslexia and non-dyslexic children. Expand
The role of visual and phonological representations in the processing of written words by readers with diagnosed dyslexia: evidence from a working memory task
TLDR
Results provide direct evidence that the dyslexic readers and the regular readers used essentially different memory coding strategies for the temporary retention of written words, with the former predominantly relying on a visual strategy and the latter on a phonological strategy. Expand
Computer-based training with ortho-phonological units in dyslexic children: new investigations.
This study aims to show that training using a computer game incorporating an audio-visual phoneme discrimination task with phonological units, presented simultaneously with orthographic units, mightExpand
Paired associate learning in Chinese children with dyslexia.
TLDR
Rule-based visual-verbal PAL, in addition to morphological awareness and rapid naming ability, uniquely distinguished children with and without dyslexia even with other metalinguistic skills statistically controlled. Expand
Word, nonword, and visual paired associate learning in Dutch dyslexic children.
TLDR
Results indicated that dyslexic children had difficulty with verbal learning of both words and nonwords, and analysis of the errors made during nonword learning showed that both phonological errors and general learning errors were distributed similarly for the reading groups. Expand
Early Intervention for Reading Disabilities
TLDR
Order of spelling-sound predictability was correlated with standardized measures of reading at pretest and posttest, and the magnitude of the relationship increased as a result of the intervention. Expand
Neurophysiological correlates of word recognition in dyslexia
TLDR
The data suggest that dyslexic children are able to learn the spelling of simple words, however, the neurophysiological correlate of recognition of these learned words is significantly attenuated, which strengthens the view that DyslexicChildren are not generally impaired in recognition memory but specific for linguistic material like words.

Working Memory in Children [and Discussion]
It is frequently assumed that the development of children’s abilities in short-term memory reflects changes in a unitary short-term store. This approach makes only poor contact with recent researchExpand
Spelling pronunciation and visual preview both facilitate learning to spell irregular words
TLDR
It is indicated that spelling pronunciation and allowing a preview can both be effective ways to learn correct spellings of orthographically unpredictable words, irrespective of age or spelling ability. Expand
The phonological loop as a language learning device.
TLDR
It is proposed that the primary purpose for which the phonological loop evolved is to store unfamiliar sound patterns while more permanent memory records are being constructed, and its use in retaining sequences of familiar words is, it is argued, secondary. Expand
