Tests of phonological, speed, motor and cerebellar tasks were given to 36 students with learning disabilities, 29 of whom were classified as non-discrepant (IQ<90) and 7 as discrepant, (IQ at least 90 and dyslexic). On the cerebellar tests of postural stability and muscle tone, the non-discrepant group performed significantly better than the children with dyslexia. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
