BACKGROUND Reading disability (RD) is a serious epidemiologic problem and may affect up to 15% to 20% of elementary school children. This study addresses whether the reading comprehension skills of children with RD improve as wavelength and contrast of light are altered. METHODS Fifty-six children, identified as either normal or reading disabled, were required to read a series of standardized 300-word passages under four conditions: no filter (baseline); light gray filter, dark gray filter… CONTINUE READING
