Dyslexia helped by wider spacing of letters, study finds

There may be some help for children suffering from dyslexia, a new finding shows.

When letters are more widely spaced apart, children can read faster and more accurately, according to a new finding by Italian and French scientists, as reported in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America.

In a series of tests conducted on children with the common reading disorder, it was shown that the children read at a 20 percent better rate when the letters were larger and further spaced apart, the Wall Street Journal reported.
