Abstract

Dyslexia, characterized by unexplained difficulty in reading, is associated with behavioural deficits.Examining the gender differences among dyslexic children can help better understand such behavioural deficits. Our review of gender comparative research literature has revealed limited knowledge about the development of gender differences to stimulate concentration in dyslexic children. Hence, this paper aims at studying the visual prediction in dyslexic children from their eye-movement behaviour.We invited dyslexic children (n = 7) five male and two female, to undertake a visual prediction experiment using eye tracking. The eye-movement data showed that male dyslexic children exhibited longer gaze at current target, while female induced interesting pattern as they precisely predicted the appearance of the next target.Our findings provide a more in-depth understanding of visual prediction in male and female dyslexic children based on their concentration.
