    Project Details

    Description

    This project aims to investigate the efficacy in providing personal frequency modulation (FM) systems to children with dyslexia at school. 120 Cantonese-speaking primary school students who are being diagnosed as dyslexic will be recruited to join the study. Free FM systems will be provided to them for one academic year. The results of this rigorous randomized controlled trial will provide strong evidence that supports clinical-decision-making in the provision of appropriate and cost-effective interventions for children with dyslexia. The information will also be useful for future health policy making related to the provision of remediation and support service to these children.
