Developmental dyslexia, a difficulty in learning to read and write fluently, is one of the most common learning disorders. In order to help dyslexic children, several intervention techniques have been propounded. However, all the techniques are either phonological oriented such as fast forward or graphogame. Multimodal treatments are especially effective in improving dyslexic symptoms. Researchers have used phonological and visual modalities together. However, there is a dearth of intervention techniques using tactile modality for improving dyslexic symptoms. The present proposal is an attempt to develop a multimodal technique as an intervention technique. Haptic intervention through virtual reality interfaces for treatment of Dyslexia has not been explored. The solution should be affordable as subjects can visit a central training facility for treatment.
