Computer program could aid some dyslexics

LONDON, May 22 (UPI) -- Up to a third of children with dyslexia could be helped through a 3-D computer program, a British vision researcher said.

Those children may have a treatable vision disorder called convergence insufficiency, which makes it difficult to read, Robin Pauc said.

Convergence insufficiency is a common two-eye disorder in which the eyes fail to work properly at close range, said Pauc, who runs Tinsley House in Hampshire, a clinic for children with learning and behavioral problems.

The disorder can be treated by challenging the eyes to work properly using 3-D computer pictures, Pauc told The Daily Telegraph in a story published Friday.

Pauc is the author of the books "Is That My Child?" and "The Brain Food Plan."
