Schools are introducing more and more non-evidence-based methods in dyslexia therapy. The aim of the study is to verify whether the novel method – Warnke Method can be regarded as a useful tool in dyslexia therapy in Polish children. The research group consisted of 37 pupils, between 10 and 12 years, diagnosed with developmental dyslexia. Participants were assessed at pretest on literacy and phonological processing and tasks measuring central auditory and visual processing with Warnke Method tools. Subsequently, each child underwent 20 training sessions of Warnke Method. Afterwards, children were assessed with posttest measures. Results showed that phonological processing served as a mediator in relationship between central auditory and visual processing and reading and writing skills. Significant improvement was observed with regard to central auditory and visual processing, phonological processing, as well as reading and writing skills. Furthermore, improvement was seen in students' grades of Polish language and literature classes.
