Many of our students’ reading disabilities are described by Dr Stanislas Dehaene in his book Reading In The Brain ” …. visualspatial attention is of paramount importance to the normal development of reading. Good decoding skills do not arise from associations between letters and speech sounds alone – letters must be perceived in their proper orientation, at the appropriate spatial location, and in their correct left-right order. In the young readers brain collaboration must take the place between the ventral visual pathway, which recognizes the identity of letters and words, and the dorsal pathway, which codes for their location in space and programs eye movements and attention. When any on of these actors stumbles, reading falls flat on its face.” ( from page 298, Reading In The Brain)
Our visual match training corrects mirror image generalization errors that causes many dyslexic readers to struggle. Fortunately, with regular targeted practice our software corrects this reading disability.
