Working Memory Challenges in Dyslexia - Not Dependent on Phonology

Working Memory Challenges in Dyslexia - Not Dependent on Phonology | Dyslexia | Scoop.it

Dyslexia is more than phonology. This research study provides more evidence that working memory challenges seen in people with dyslexia are not dependent on phonological issues. The study was performed in compensated and non-compensated adults with dyslexia. Study subjects were chosen from university-attending dyslexic students.

It's important that the research and scientific community identify what challenges persist and what challenges have been overcome when planning programs, classrooms, and workplaces for people with dyslexia.

Dyslexia and Autism are Opposites - Implications for Creativity, Late-Blooming / Precocity, and Savant Abilities

Dyslexia and Autism are Opposites - Implications for Creativity, Late-Blooming / Precocity, and Savant Abilities | Dyslexia | Scoop.it

Excerpt: "Structural studies from Michael Casanova and colleagues showed that the brains of dyslexic and autistic subjects had opposite findings. Microcolumns are repeating groups of neurons that share a common dendritic bundle. The microcolumnar hypothesis is the idea that the microcolumn is the basic unit in the cortex, not individual neurons.

 

"Dyslexia and autism are on opposite tails of the normal distribution of the width of minicolumns...Autistic individuals have increased number of smaller minicolumns and dyslexic children have decreased number of larger minicolumns..." When the depth of gyral depths were measured of dyslexics compared to controls, "mean gyral white matter depth was 3.05 mm (SD ± 0.30 mm) in dyslexic subjects and 1.63 mm (SD ± 0.15 mm) in the controls." Researchers speculated that longer connectivity in the brains of dyslexics could account for "a greater capacity for abstract, 'visionary' thinking", but also slower development (late blooming?) including a slower development of reading. Its information like this that should reinforce the idea that dyslexic children should have a differentiated educational program (fewer inappropriate demands at early ages) - and recognition of high creative potential and capacity for abstraction...."
