BACKGROUND: an audio-visual computerized remediation program in students with developmental dyslexia. AIM: to verify the efficacy of an audio-visual computerized remediation program in students with developmental dyslexia. The specific goals of this study involved the comparison of the linguistic-cognitive performance of students with developmental dyslexia with that of students considered good readers; to compare the results obtained in pre and post-testing situations of students with dyslexia who were and were not submitted to the program; and to compare the results obtained with the remediation program in students with developmental dyslexia to those obtained in good readers. METHODS: the participants of this study were 20 students who were divided as follows: group I (GI) subdivided in: GIe (five students with developmental dyslexia who were submitted to the program) and GIc (five students with developmental dyslexia who were not submitted to the program); group II (GII) was subdivided in: GIIe (five good readers who were submitted to the program) and GIIc (five good readers who were not submitted to the program). An audio-visual computerized remediation program was used - "Play on". RESULTS: results indicate that GI presented a lower performance in auditory processing and phonological awareness when compared to GII in the pre-testing situation. However, GIe presented a similar performance to that of GII in the post-testing situation, indicating the effectiveness of the audio-visual remediation program in students with developmental dyslexia. CONCLUSION: this study made evident the effectiveness of an audio-visual remediation program in students with developmental dyslexia.
