Children with dyslexia face huge difficulty learning to read. It is known to be a complex disorder involving neural, cognitive and genetic factors. While many intervention strategies have been developed, few have been demonstrated to be useful for improving reading performance. Our team will share our on-going project that explores an innovative intervention strategy – perceptual training in a gamified, individualized, computerized and mobile context. The speaker will share our recently developed mobile application that assists children to develop various perceptual skills, which aims to relax the perceptual bottlenecks of reading development. The speaker will also discuss the effectiveness of this intervention programs, and how perceptual training can be a promising intervention strategy that is cost-effective, accessible, fun, and catering for the diversified needs of individual learners.

患讀寫障礙的兒童學習閱讀時會遇到莫大困難。此學習障礙成因複雜,已知涉及大腦神經、認知和遺傳等因素。雖然介入策略很多,僅有小部份獲證實能改善閱讀表現。本研究團隊正研究一項創新的讀寫障礙介入策略 - 透過遊戲化、個人化、電腦化及流動的環境提供感知訓練。最近由團隊開發的應用程式,以發展感知技巧,從而紓緩閱讀發展的樽頸為目的。講者會討論此介入方案的成效,和探討感知訓練如何成為一套兼具成本效益、娛樂性、容易接觸以及照顧個人差異的介入策略。
