Dyslexia: News from the web:
New research from the University of Helsinki suggests that humans begin to distinguish between sounds before they are even born. Eino Partanen and colleagues explored how prenatal experiences influence learning. “We wanted to find out what kind of material foetuses can learn in the womb, what kind of neural representations they form,” he said.
Can this be developed into any kind of therapy or intervention for infants? Partanen thinks so. Problems such as dyslexia, he thinks, could be approached at a much earlier level. Although there is no way of knowing whether a baby is going to develop dyslexia, with some degree there are factors that you can look into to see whether or not they are at risk. Dyslexia is partly genetic, for example. In this case, prenatal therapy could be developed for risk groups in order to facilitate learning.
