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 questions.
