New Research on Dyslexia

According to a study conducted by researchers from The University of California San Francisco, children with a diagnosis of dyslexia were shown to display increased emotional sensitivity in film viewing probes compared to children without this diagnosis. Results from the study showed that children with dyslexia exhibited significantly greater reactivity in terms of facial expression and respiratory rate compared to peers without dyslexia, suggesting an underlying predisposition to stress, anxiety, and emotional dysregulation which could increasingly manifest with challenges in the academic areas of reading, writing which are associated with the diagnosis.
