Want to train your child’s reading and math abilities? – Now enrolling!

With support from a grant awarded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (R01 HD086011, PI: Horowitz-Kraus), the RLDC launches a study of an online reading intervention for dyslexia. Dr. Tzipi Horowitz-Kraus and colleagues at Cincinnati Children’s, Kennedy Krieger Institute, Washington University, and The Technion Institute of Technology in Israel, will test a new intervention. This intervention targets executive functions as a cause for nonfluent reading in children ages 8 to 12 years of age. The study will enroll 120 children with and without reading difficulties over the next 5 years.

The Reading and Literacy Discovery Center at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital initiated a reading and math intervention study for English-speaking children ages 8-12 years with and without reading difficulties. The training is computerized, it lasts 8 weeks and can be done online at home. Potential participants will be invited to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and will perform brain imaging testing (fMRI) and behavioral testing before and after the intervention.
