Abstract

Children with reading disorders may be at a greater risk for academic and social difficulties than their typically developing peers as language is the foundation of instructional discourse, learning, and social interactions. Conventional instructional and intervention methods, however, may not support fully the efforts of all children presenting with deficits in this area. Given the importance of reading ability on academic achievement, this paper examines the efficacy of neurofeedback training and implications for instructional and clinical practice.
