En los dislexicos se ha observado un desarrollo anormal en tareas que requieren la coordinacion de ambos hemisferios cerebrales (Coslett & Monsul, 1994; Witelson, 1985), pues a menudo, los sujetos dislexicos presentan ciertos comportamientos semejantes a los mostrados por los pacientes con "cerebro dividido": incoordinacion entre las dos manos, agraria de la mano izquierda, incapacidad para identificar objetos con la mano izquierda (astereognosia izquierda), dificultad para dibujar en tres dimensiones con su mano derecha (falta de tridimensionalidad) y "extincion" del oido izquierdo cuando se les presenta simultaneamente una palabra en cada oido (Springer & Deutsch, 1988).
