Dyslexia Information Online Packet
Thank you for your interest in learning more about our center
and our ongoing research studies. On this page you will find
information about reading remediation programs and other resources
on learning disabilities. It is important to keep in mind that we
have not worked directly with your child, and thus we are unable
to provide any specific feedback or recommendations. We hope you
find the following information and publications helpful and feel
free to contact us at (202) 784-4407 should you have any further

INFORMATION ON COMMERCIAL INTERVENTION PROGRAMS
Please note that whilst the investigators at CSL are currently
investigating a number of reading interventions using research based
approaches CSL does not endorse any particular program for reading remediation.
