Disability of phonological versus visual information processes in Japanese dyslexic children

Akira Uno, M. Kaneko, N. Haruhara, M. Kaga

We analyzed phonological and visual information processes of four Japanese dyslexic children between 7- 10 years of age. None of them had disability in word retrieval and/or auditory memory. Two of them manifested lower score in phonological awareness tests while the others showed normal score. All children showed subnormal score in a visual cognitive test, a visuo-spacial constructional test, and a visual long-term memory test. 90 % of their errors were formal ones. As results, these four Japanese dyslexic children are thought to have disabilities in visual information processes and are thought to be of a different type from those reported as phonological dyslexia.
