Tick Tock Talk, the blog on mental / interval time keeping, has coverage of an interesting study on balance and dyslexia. The researchers did a meta-analysis of 17 published studies on balance and dyslexia. Their conclusion:
Balance deficits are associated with dyslexia, but these effects are apparently more strongly related to third variables other than to reading ability. Deficits of balance may indicate increased risk of developmental disorder, but are unlikely to be uniquely associated with dyslexia.
