The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of visual transformation therapy with a cognitive information processing approach in improving children with cognitive dyslexia. The method of this study is quasi-experimental with a pretest-posttest design and a control group. To select the statistical population, 140 students aged 7-9 years with specific learning disabilities who presented to Yeganeh center of Savojbolagh in Alborz province in 2018-19 school year were used. Then, 60 students with dyslexia were selected according to the available sampling method, of which only 20 students had a visual learning style. These twenty students were randomly assigned to the two study and control groups. The instruments were as follows: Wechsler Intelligence Scale, VAK Questionnaire, history case form and a reading disorder test administered by the researcher. Then, the students were divided into two homogeneous groups according to gender, age, educational level, and intelligence. Then, within two months, ISHINR, Cognitive Information Processing, Cattell - Horn - Carroll, and Visual Learning Style training sessions were conducted for the study group, while the control group received no training. At the end of the treatment sessions and 8 weeks after, the students were reassessed. The results of repeated measures analysis of variance showed that the effect of time and group effect were significant during the study (P<0.05). Thus, this method is effective and can be proposed for the treatment of cognitive dyslexia.
