Dyslexia is the most prevalent learning disability affecting roughly 10% of the population. The goal of the University of Washington Reading & Dyslexia Research Program is to understand the factors that contribute to reading difficulties and use this knowledge to design innovative, personalized intervention programs. We will be hosting an open house to share our research with anyone who is interested in learning what science has taught us about reading, brain development and dyslexia.
