Athanasios Drigas, Athanassia Dourou

Abstract


This paper is a review on the exploitation of the Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) on the diagnosis, intervention and assistance of learning disabilities and especially on dyslexia. Here are presented several studies that include computerized techniques or developed applications for adults and children with dyslexia. Special focus is given on individualized approaches in the areas of diagnosis and intervention. New technologies on general or special areas, such as fuzzy systems, artificial intelligence etc. offer direct observation, measurement and qualification of the subject so they are incorporated on designed software for diagnosis, screening or intervention. Here are presented, studies on learning disabilities (dyslexia in particular) that have been realized so far by researchers who have done global research in the educational community. These studies seem promising through technological progress on the areas of psychological assessment, diagnosis and intervention.
