A Trial of Piracetam in Two Subgroups of Students with Dyslexia Enrolled in Summer Tutoring.
Ackerman, Peggy T.; And Others
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v24 n9 p542-49 Nov 1991
Fifty-three children (ages 9-13) with dyslexia completed a summer tutoring program that emphasized word-building skills. Children who received piracetam (a purportedly memory-enhancing drug) did not improve more than nonmedicated children in any aspect of reading. Children subtyped as "phonetic" improved significantly more in word-recognition ability than "dysphonetic" children. (Author/JDD)
