Some of the previous studies show that children with SLD have deficits in visual processing and working memory. Hence, the aim of this research was to investigate problems of visual working memory based on behavioral neuroscience method, using an eye tracker device. The method of present study was ex-post facto study. The participants included couple of twelve children with SLD (mean age=10.92) and without SLD (mean age=12.50). For measuring visual working memory, CORSI task was used and eye-tracking was used for recording saccade duration, saccade frequency, saccade amplitude, and saccade latency and saccade velocity. The findings highlighted that there is a significant difference in block span, total score and memory span between children with/without SLD (P< 0.05). There was a clear difference in saccade amplitude and saccade duration between two groups and these indexes were poor in SLDs. Based on these findings, further studies of neural mechanisms of visual working memory in SLDs are needed for better clarification of such deficits.
