Journal of Learning Disabilities, v36 n1 p68-73 Jan-Feb 2003
A cue-target visual attention task was administered to 25 children (ages 10-12) with dyslexia. Results showed a general pattern of slower responses in the children with dyslexia compared to controls. Subjects also had longer reaction times in the short and long cue-target interval conditions (covert and overt shift of attention). (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
