Abstract: Introdution: Alterations in attention and executive functions have been described in dyslexia despite the conflicting results. Objective: To compare the performance of children with dyslexia and with-out difficulties in tests of attention and executive functions. Methods: Participated 50 students divided into: 25 with dyslexia and 25 without learning difficulties. The instruments were used: Trail Making Test, Tests of Cancellation, Stroop Color Word Test and Tower of London. The scores of the tests were compared between groups. Results: The group with dyslexia showed poorer performance with the tests, except the Tower of London. Conclusion: The results suggest that dyslexics may show changes in visual sustained attention and some aspects of executive functions: flexibility and cognitive inhibition, but not in planning. Changes in components executives can monitor the core deficit in phonological processing in dyslexia.
