Neurobiology of Dyslexia. Elizabeth S Norton, Sara D Beach and John DE Gabrieli. Current Opinion in Neurobiology, Feb. 2015, Volume 30, Issue null, Pages 73-78.
Dyslexia is one of the most common learning disabilities, yet its brain basis and core causes are not yet fully understood. Neuroimaging methods, including structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging, diffusion tensor imaging, and electrophysiology, have signi?cantly contributed to knowledge about the neurobiology of dyslexia. Recent studies have discovered brain differences before formal instruction that likely encourage or discourage learning to read effectively, distinguished between brain differences that likely re?ect the etiology of dyslexia versus brain differences that are the consequences of variation in reading experience, and identi?ed distinct neural networks associated with speci?c psychological factors that are associated with dyslexia.

I just wanted to let you know that Aiden is loving the Dynaread program and enthusiastically works at it two times a day. He is proud of his progress and finds the topics interesting. We are currently using it exclusively as his language program and supplementing it with additional cursive work using the readers as the written text.
