Adults with dyslexia improve when pushed to read faster

from Nature

People with dyslexia are often taught to work through reading by "slowing down and sounding it out." Results from a computerized training program, however, suggest that "hurrying up and getting on with it" might be a better practice. Accelerated training could improve both reading fluency and comprehension, with lasting benefits. The training protocol speeds up reading by displaying a sentence and then systematically erasing it, letter by letter, in the direction of reading. It then asks questions to test the reader's comprehension. If the questions are answered correctly, the software moves on to the next sentence but gives the reader 2 milliseconds — the duration of an eyeblink — less reading time per letter. more
