Action video games could help dyslexic people to read
Washington: A new study has revealed that action video games might improve literacy skills among those with dyslexia.
Vanessa Harrar of the University of Oxford said that cross-sensory shift of attention from visual to auditory stimuli is particularly difficult for people who have dyslexia compared to good readers and the new evidence has begun to link multisensory integration and dyslexia to the same parts of the brain.
Researchers have said that further study is needed and suggested that dyslexia training programs should take this asymmetry into account.
Harrar added that people with dyslexia might learn associations between letters and their sounds faster if they first hear the sound and then see the corresponding letter or word.
The study is published in Current Biology.
