- In our study, most Chinese children with dyslexia have significant difficulties in speech-in-noise perception and Cantonese tone identification and have significant language impairment.
- Using assistive listening devices in classrooms for one academic year may improve literacy and auditory processing abilities in Chinese children with dyslexia.
- Provision of such devices to students with dyslexia in schools may be considered, similar to provision of frequency modulated systems to students with hearing impairment in schools.
