Researchers argue those with dyslexia are specialized to explore the unknown. This explorative bias has an evolutionary basis that plays a crucial role in human survival.
Researchers have developed a new theory of how developmental math disability occurs.
The first two years of primary education are a critical point for the development of the brain's reading network in children, researchers say.
Researchers claim less gray matter in the brains of those with dyslexia is a consequence of poorer reading experiences and not the root cause of the disorder.
E-readers configured to show only a few words per line can help improve reading comprehension and speed for those with dyslexia, a new study finds.
A new book helps researchers screen for potential reading difficulties in young children.
Once a word is knows, sounding it out is unnecessary, a new study reports.
A structural brain scaffold in infants serves as a foundation for literacy. Language and reading may refine this pre-existing brain scaffold. The study also reveals robust language networks activate while children sleep if stories are read to them during slumber.
Researchers identified genetic variants that can predispose children to dyslexia and language impairment. The study could allow for earlier diagnosis and more successful interventions for language impairment disorders.
