Abstract
Statement of the Problem: The Specific Developmental Dyslexia (SDD) is related to 3-12% of the student population and manifested by a diversity of symptoms in the process of reading and writing acquisition. It is characterized by various interactions of dysfunctions of biological, neurophysiological, cognitive and psychomotor factors. Early detection of SDD at the preschool age is becoming more urgent as it contributes in reducing or preventing multiple negative impacts on later school age. Aiming in this study, to create and implement appropriate individualized early intervention models, early diagnosis procedures were designed, applied, and analyzed through a correlation model of the following factors: cognitive (memory, attention, perception), psychomotor (laterality, spatiotemporal orientation), linguistic (emerging literacy), socio-emotional (internalized and executive behavior). Methodology & Theoretical Orientation: The survey was applied to a sample of 20 infants from 4.6 to 6.0 years, and was completed in the following stages: a) implementation of four preschool diagnostic tools identifying infants at risk for early onset of SDD; b) investigation of main precursors factors; c) figuration of SDD customized profiles; c) design of intervention plans adjusted to the specific needs of each infant, implementing two structured intervention methods. Findings: Through multivariate analysis models, a total of 12 infants’ diagnostic key SDD profiles were emerged, in a distinct multifaceted complexity. According to the classification and the combined manifest of difficulties, appropriately tailored individual intervention programs were designed and implemented on 10 infants for a period of 8 months. Conclusion & Significance: Though the current research was attempted to be stressed, the necessity as well as the possibility of developing, at the preschool age: i) safe, individualized diagnostic profiles of SDD and, ii) effective interventions models, well-suited individual specific needs.
