Abstract

Multiple oral re-reading (MOR) is a text-based intervention that has been used to improve reading rate and accuracy in individuals with acquired alexia. In the present study, six individuals with word-length effects for single-word reading speed were treated with MOR. Although they ranged in alexia severity, all six individuals benefitted from MOR treatment, demonstrating significantly improved single-word reading reaction times. Four of the six significantly improved text reading rates, and the remaining two (who were the mildest in severity) improved text reading accuracy following treatment. The results support the therapeutic value of MOR across a range of alexia severity.
