Improving reading skills in students with dyslexia: the efficacy of a sublexical training with rhythmic background

Silvia Bonacina, Alice Cancer, Pier Luca Lanzi, Maria Luisa Lorusso, Alessandro Antonietti
2015 Frontiers in Psychology  
A computer-assisted training, called Rhythmic Reading Training (RRT), was designed in which reading exercises are combined with rhythm background.  ...  Reading improvements after the intervention period were compared with ones of a matched control group of 14 students with DD who received no intervention.  ...  Acknowledgments We thank the Junior High School "Don Ticozzi" in Lecco for their participation in the research project.  ...
