Honing visual attention boosts reading ability. Though small, the study bolsters evidence that dyslexia stems in part from problems in focusing attention onto letters and words in an orderly way.

I just love the way technology is used to help people.

Sarah Hibbeln's curator insight, November 14, 2013 9:01 PM

This article I thought was AMAZING! It intersted me a lot that video games might be able to treat Dyslexia people. The University of Padua in Italy found that 10 kids with dyslexia who played an action-filled video game for an 80-minute sessions increased their reading speed! These video games help Dyslexia people in focusing attention onto letters and words in an orderly way. Apparently, video games make you focus on the players to constantly redirecting their attention to different targets. The training worked on visual attention skills and reading hand in hand, and the reading improvements even exceeded those obtained in children after traditional therapies for dyslexia.  Dyslexia need to focus on building language skills, which video games improve. Finally, This article needs to get out more and help people in not only the U.S. but the whole world.
