Effects of Executive Attention Deficits in Children with Dyslexia Beyond Phonology

by Chinta Suvarna Rekha and Bipin Indurkhya

Reading is one of the cognitive tasks that require a high alert state; a large number of studies around the world demonstrated that frontoparietal regions of the brain are involved in the reading process. Parietal regions are also responsible for alert state, disruption of parietal regions leads to disruption of attention mechanism. Considerable evidence has shown that dyslexics have a disruptive attentional mechanism, which in turn affects the reading process. In our previous studies, we observed attention deficits among children with dyslexia (CWD).

In this study, we explored the attention and phonological abilities of bilingual children with dyslexia. These abilities were studied with Attention Network Test (ANT) and phoneme awareness test (PA) respectively.
