PURPOSE: The objective of this study is to assess proprioception anomalies in postural deficiency syndrome in a group of children suffering from reading impairment.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: Sixty male patients with an average age of 11 years and 9 months were included in the study. Initially, they were given a standardized neuropsychological examination, which confirmed the diagnosis of reading impairment. Then after filling out a questionnaire seeking a proprioceptive anomaly, the patients were subjected to a clinical ocular and postural examination consisting of nine precisely described steps.
RESULTS: All of the patients recruited for the study presented clinical signs confirming a proprioception disorder found as a part of postural deficiency syndrome.
CONCLUSION: This study opens a new direction for research concerning the origin and treatment of at least some reading-impaired children.
