Dyslexic Children Emotionally Reactive

Teacher Insights

Children diagnosed with dyslexia show greater emotional reactivity than children without dyslexia, according to a study by UC San Franciso neuroscientists. When children with dyslexia watched emotionally evocative videos, they showed increased physiological and behavioral responses when compared to children without dyslexia. This higher emotional reactivity was correlated with stronger connectivity in the brain’s salience network, a system that supports emotion generation and self-awareness. The findings are based on a study done among 32 children between the age of 8 and 12 as well as 22 children without dyslexia.
