Titia L. van Zuijen, Anna Plakas, Ben A.M. Maassen, Natasha M. Maurits and Aryan van der Leij Infant ERPs separate children at risk of dyslexia who become good readers from those who become poor readers Developmental Science 16
We recorded ERPs from 2-month-old infants at-risk of dyslexia and from a control group to investigate whether their auditory system processes speech sound changes differently depending on their reading fluency in second grade. In both the fluent reading at-risk and the control group we found an MMR to the speech sound changes whereas the non-fluent at-risk group did not show an MMR. We conclude that already at a very early age there is a speech processing deficit in children who later on become non-fluent readers.
