"Video games get top marks, help dyslexic kids to read

Dyslexic kids, raise a glass of sparkling apple juice to researchers who've found that playing video games improves your reading skills. The clever minds at the University of Padua and the Scientific Institute Medea of Bosisio Parini in Italy found that in the video game vs. boring reading treatment showdown, 12 hours of action-packed game playing clobbered therapy big-time. Researchers assessed two groups of dyslexic kids, then had one group play nine 80-minute gaming sessions. It was a smackdown with the reading and attention skills of the gamers outshining the rest. "Action video games enhance many aspects of visual attention, mainly improving the extraction of information from the environment," explains one researcher. Kids, tell that to your parents next time they confiscate the XBOX. [Source]"

Take that all you video game hatters. Children can also benefit from playing video games.
