What Research is Being Done?
Current research avenues focus on developing techniques to diagnose and treat dyslexia and other learning disabilities, increasing the understanding of the biological and possible genetic bases of learning disabilities, and exploring the relationship between neurophysiological processes and cognitive functions with regard to reading ability and learning. This information is provided by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke and the National Institute of Health.
