Early Intervention in Children Good to Prevent Dyslexia

A study by KU Leuven University has shown that neuro-biological differences exist in children with and without dyslexia was present already before they learn to read. The findings are based on a study of 75 children in the age of 2, 5 and 6 years who had MRI scan at three points. In children with dyslexic problems, the volume of the brain was lower in the left region at the back. The connection between this region and regions at the front was also less well-developed. The study shows that the reading network develops mainly in the first two years of primary education. During this period, the brain regions responsible for reading development increase in volume. In the later years of school, a stabilisation takes place. These findings point to the importance of early intervention in the treatment or prevention of language problems.
