|Subjects||35 Iranian children, ages 7 to 12, native Persian speakers, with reading difficulties.|
|Usage||5 sessions per week, 50-60 minutes per session, 6 weeks|
|Assessment||Raven’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.
