Healthier Me: Video Games & Dyslexia

Posted: Updated:

 

In Thursday's Healthier Me, it's the kind of medical research kids dream of: a new stud has found that video games may help some children read better!

 

The study focused on children with dyslexia, meaning they have difficulty with reading accuracy and comprehension; after nine 80-minute sessions of playing active video games, kids were able to read faster and more accurately.

 

Researchers say more work needs to be done before recommending any type of "video game therapy" -- but suggest it offers hope for early intervention.
