A new approach to lateralization irregularities formation was proposed. The emphasis is put on the relationship between visual and auditory attention. In this approach hearing is stimulated using time scale modified speech, and sight is stimulated rendering the text of the currently heard speech. Moreover, displayed text is modified using several techniques, i.e., zooming, highlighting, etc. In the experimental part of the paper, results obtained for the reading comprehension training were presented. It was shown that usage of the proposed method could improve this skill in a group of children between the ages of 7 and 8 years.
