The sample of present research consisted of 45 students with dyslexia who were selected via available sampling and then were assigned randomly to experimental) phonological awareness and mental rotation training) and control groups(n=15 in each). To collect data, revised Wechsler intelligence scale for children and reading improvement and dyslexia test were used. Multivariate Covariance (MANCOVA) was used to analyze the data.

Results: Findings indicated that scores of mental rotation and phonological awareness training have a significant effect on reading performance of dyslexic students compared with control group (p<0.001). Furthermore, there is no difference between mental rotation and phonological awareness training effectiveness on reading performance of dyslexic students (p>0.05).
