Hundreds of Favorable Dyslexic Responses to Medications

Reading Activity

  • Increased spontaneous reading activity
  • Diminished need for finger pointing due to improved tracking capability
  • Improved fixation ability
  • Improved foreground/background differentiation (i.e., decreased blurring and increase in degree of letter blackness)
  • Decreased or eliminated reading reversals
  • Increased reading speed and accuracy
  • Decreased reading fatigue, headaches, dizziness, nausea
  • Elimination of word blurring, movement, doubling…
  • Increased interest in reading
  • Improved memory for visually seen letters and words
  • Increased ability to see whole word and sentence sequences instead of prior tunnel vision — just seeing one letter at a time
  • More rapid processing of read content
  • Enhanced concentration for reading content
  • Decreased distractibility
  • Similar improvements for all corresponding phonetic functioning/dysfunctioning — including enhanced auditory processing and ability to coordinate/integrate visual, phonetic and related reading mechanisms

Writing Activity

  • Increased spontaneous writing activity
  • Smoother rhythm and increased legibility
  • Improved spacing between letters and words
  • Increased horizontality in writing
  • Increased use of cursive writing (printing usually easier)
  • Decreased writing reversals
  • Increased use of grammatical details (i.e., periods, commas, etc.)
  • Increased writing speed
  • Increased word content
  • Decreased number of spelling errors — especially those intensified by impaired writing


  • Increased spelling recall and decreased letter reversals (i.e., insertion and omissions)


  • Increased mechanical alignment
  • Elimination or number reversals — both reading and writing
  • Increased memory for calculations
  • Better understanding

Directionality, Spatial Organization, and Planning

  • Increased right/left differentiation
  • Enhanced spatial awareness
  • Decreased overloading with spatial details or “crowds”
  • Decreased rotations
  • Increased detail in drawing
  • Improved spatial connections in drawings
  • Improved spacing and sequencing in writing
  • Improved relationships to spatial coordination tasks (i.e., ball playing, catching, throwing, batting, etc.)

Balance and Coordination

  • Increased ability to skip, hop, ride a bike, dribble a basketball, etc
  • Improved fine, gross and rhythmic motor tasks of all kinds
  • Decreased clumsiness and accident proneness (i.e., tripping, falling, and various past-pointing pointing activities)
  • Increased ability to walk a straight line without drifting to the side
  • Increased feeling of internal steadiness
  • Disappearance of balance/coordination phobias such as fears of sports, heights, driving, etc.

Foreground/Background Sensory Activity

  • Decreased visual and/or acoustic blurring and scrambling


  • Increased spontaneity of speech
  • Decreased slurring
  • Increased rate and improved rhythm of speech
  • Increased verbal content
  • Decreased stuttering, stammering, and hesitations

Sequential Activity and Memory

  • Increase in sequence memory (i.e., days of the week, months of the year, spelling, multiplication, etc.)
  • Improved motor memory and sequences — resulting in enhanced coordination of all tasks


  • Increased sense of time and time sequences
  • Improved timing of all sensor-motor tasks

Concentration/Distractibility — ADD/ADHD

  • Improved and increased clarity of consciousness
