Focuses on the problems of dyslexia, a condition which causes great distress to children and adults, since it results in difficulties in reading and consequently also in learning. One theory is that it is a listening rather than a seeing complaint. Examines a new invention, called the “Electronic ear” which has proved helpful in many cases.
