No Evidence for Systematic White Matter Correlates of Dyslexia and Dyscalculia

Dyslexia: News from the web:

A very interesting study has been completed. They compared people with dyslexia, dyscalculia, both and neither. They focused on the corona radiata and the arcuate fasciculus, two tracts associated with reading and mathematics in a number of previous studies. Using Bayesian hypothesis testing, they showed that the data showed no differences between groups for these particular tracts, a finding that seems to go against the current view in other studies.
This outcome, if confirmed, suggest that structural differences associated with dyslexia and dyscalculia might not be as reliable as previously thought, and this may have some impact on how we approach remediation.

Ikea and Dyslexia

Dyslexia: News from the web:

IKEA founder Ingvar Kamprad passed away recently, and much has been said about his life and legacy. I want to highlight the positive impact his dyslexia had – as it has on many other entrepreneurs and high-achieving people across all sectors. I’m sure his dyslexia drove him to focus upon the things he was good at, and become expert at finding others who could excel in the areas he struggled.

The value of early detection

Dyslexia: News from the web:

Without early detection and tailored support, 74 per cent of dyslexic children will remain poor readers in grade 9 and many will be unable to read well as adults, leading to frustration, school drop outs, and unemployment. However, identifying dyslexic students and providing support equips many for success in school and in life, improves behaviours and may eliminate their later need for special education.

New insights from research

Dyslexia: News from the web:

Research tells us that dyslexia is due to a problem in language rather than in vision, specifically the phonological system, which is used for processing speech sounds. Phonological processing refers to using speech sounds for coding information when reading, listening, and speaking. Although it’s important to assess for phonological abilities like phonological awareness, phonological memory, and rapid naming, these alone should not determine whether one has dyslexia. “It’s important to do a comprehensive assessment that extends beyond phonological processing,”
