Subjects     35 Iranian children, ages 7 to 12, native Persian speakers, with reading difficulties.
Usage5 sessions per week, 50-60 minutes per session, 6 weeks
AssessmentRaven’s Progressive Matrices, test of Reading Words and Reading Pseudowords.

Summary of Findings:  As reported in two articles, the study showed increases in memory and attention in students diagnosed with reading difficulties.  The experimental group showed training effects on non-trained tests as well as transfer effect to visual-auditory sustained attention, visual auditory vigilance/speed, and hyperactivity after training, providing further evidence for shared processes between working memory, attention and reading.
