Abstrakt

In their recent publication, Pinna & Deiana (2018) describe the significant benefits of colour as a word segmentation tool for both adults and children with dyslexia. Here we describe how these findings may support work that claims synaesthesia, a neurological phenomenon where graphemes elicit an automatic, involuntary experience of colour, may develop in response to the cognitive demands of gaining literacy in childhood (Watson, Akins, Spiker, Crawford & Enns, 2014; 2017). We further describe how this may reflect on the underlying mechanisms of synaesthesia.
