There is so much super-interesting research on how children learn to read, write and spell. Let’s share the knowledge!
- New studies show the genetic contributions in dyslexia are strong and that several aspects of neurodevelopment are likely involved (Gialluisi et al., 2020).
- Aside from the phonological system, which is known to be impaired in developmental dyslexia, temporal timing, visual-perception, and auditory processing can also be involved, (Ladanyi et al. 2019).
- The overlap of dyslexia with ADHD and developmental coordination disorder is also an important consideration. “Dyslexia and Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are highly comorbid neurodevelopmental disorders (estimates of 25–40% bidirectional comorbidity),” McGrath & Stoodley, 2019.
- Classroom physical activity can improve on-task behavior, attention, and memory.
- Coordinative classroom physical activity supports the patterning and sequencing that underlie reading and math.
We will talk about how to identify and intervene in ADHD, dyslexia, and developmental coordination disorder in our upcoming training.
