Dyslexia and Cognitive Training

  • Dyslexia is a brain-based learning disability involving decreased activity in six brain regions: working memory, auditory and visual processing, comprehension skills, structural analysis, and executive functioning.

  • Dyslexics have brain connectivity issues – brain training enhances brain connectivity in those very regions and improvements are measurable.

  • Effective intervention must go beyond phonetics and address multiple brain regions and networks.

  • There is mounting neuro-scientific evidence that intervention for those with dyslexia must address auditory and visual systems, working memory, comprehension skills, and executive functioning—not just reading and phonetics.
