Introduction: The aim of this study was to compare the brain wave pattern of two groups of dyslexic students with perceptual and linguistic types with normal students in reading.
Methods: In this study, 27 students (24 boys and 3 girls) from first to fifth grade with an Mean±SD of age 8.16±10.09 years participated. Eight students with perceptual type dyslexia, ten students with linguistic type dyslexia, and nine normal students with reading were selected by purposive sampling method.
Results: After removing noise and artifacts, the data were converted into quantitative digits using Neuroguide software and analyzed using multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) and univariate analysis of variance (ANOVA). Based on the results, the linguistic group and the normal group differed in the relative power of the alpha wave in the two channels Fp1 and Fp2, but there was no difference between the three linguistic, perceptual, and normal groups in the absolute power of the four waves of the delta, theta, alpha, and beta.
Conclusion: The relative power spectrum of the alpha band in the forehead can be significantly related to dyslexia problems as seen in the linguistic type.
