E-readers ‘more effective’ for some dyslexic readers
An interesting story from the BBC about how, for some folks suffering with dyslexia, e-readers may be a helpful tool for them.
US scientists studied 100 pupils reading on paper and e-readers. On the device, those who struggled most with sight-word reading read faster and those with limited visual attention spans had better comprehension. The ability to display text in short lines with fewer words helped pupils focus on each word, they told Plos One.
