Psychophysiological Characteristics of Children with Dyslexia

Pop-Jordanova N, Markovska-Simoska S, Loleska S, Loleski M.


Dyslexia is a specific learning disorder that involves difficulty reading due to decoding problems for letters and words. Statistics shows that 5-10% of the general population has dyslexia. The aetiology of reading disorder supposes some biological causes and morphological markers useful in the classification and early identification of the problem.

The aim of this article is to find appropriate parameters, which will be useful for early diagnosis and finding the right modalities for treatment.

Our findings about QEEG characteristics are not conclusive. However, slowing of brain activity in dyslexic children appeared to be confirmed. These findings lead to the possible hypothesis of delay in neurological development of these children.

Significant theta/beta ratio suggest possible comorbidity with ADHD.

Further research with more children included is proposed.
