  •   Objective  To determine the association between physical health fitness with Chinese reading ability of school-aged children, so as to provide evidence for improving children's reading ability.  Methods  A questionnaire survey was conducted among 1 923 school-aged children in grades 2-6 in a primary school in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China.The questionnaire included basic demographic information and Dyslexia Checklist for Chinese Children and the Pupil Rating Scale-Revised Screening.At the same time, participants underwent physical fitness tests which included an assessment of height, weight, and lung capacity, as well as a 50-meter run, sit-forward bend, one-minute skipping rope task, sit-ups, and a 50 × 8 round trip.  Results  A total of 59 children were identified with dyslexia.Normal children achieved higher scores than children with dyslexia in the total physical health score, as well as the one-minute skipping rope score, one-minute sit-up score, and sitting forward score (P < 0.05).Multiple linear regression analyses showed that the reading ability of girls was higher than that of boys (β=-3.04, P < 0.01), and the children who regularly participated in more intense physical activity and who had higher fitness scores had a higher reading ability (β=-1.68, -0.08, P < 0.01).Children's reading ability increased significantly with parental educational level (P < 0.05).  Conclusion  Gender, parents'education level, physical exercise intensity, and children's physical fitness were identified as influencing factors of school-age children's reading ability.A positive correlation was found between children's physical health level and reading ability.
