Excerpts from Full Text / Notes:

We present three studies which indicate a consistent dyslexic deficit on CB (Corsi block tests, reversed) that can be ameliorated by visual strategy instructions. Our data suggest that, without instruction, people with dyslexia are unable to adopt an effective CB strategy and this is consistent with a deficit in executive function.
