Summary/Abstract: Learning to read depends on the development of a number of cognitive functions. Along with poor phonology skills, many dyslexic children show difficulties in several specific nonverbal abilities. Their identification during preschool or early primary school should enhance efficient prediction of dyslexia. The article presents research evidence on the deficits of dyslexic children in coherent motion detection, automatisation, attention shifting, visual attention span, and anchoring. Exemplar tasks for their assessment are described.
