Abstract

Legasthenic children have undergone a psychological training program adjusted to each individual case. In order to possibly increase therapeutic effect, patients were subjected to an additional medication with piracetam. This pilot-study reports on the results of combined treatment using psychiatric parameters. Improvement of school-performance and social behavior has been observed.
