Abstract:
To date, it appears that many studies on dyslexia and its visual correlates are concentrated on children and there are only a few studies examining adult groups with dyslexia. This PhD introduces new knowledge about an adult population (university students) with dyslexia and those dyslexics who diagnosed with Meares-Irlen syndrome, compared to adults with normal reading abilities. Given that a common support strategy at undergraduate level is the provision of extra time in examinations, studies will focus on the effects of fatigue on binocular instability and ocular dominance amongst these cohorts.
