UW study examines how the brains of students with dyslexia respond to intensive reading intervention (Seeing Stars)
Lindamood-Bell has partnered with many universities to study the neurological and behavioral effects of our sensory-cognitive instruction.
Currently, The University of Washington’s Institute for Learning and Brain Sciences (I-LABS) is conducting a study that examines how the brains of students with dyslexia respond to intensive reading intervention (Seeing Stars instruction).
We look forward to the publication of their research.
The perspective of the mother of a study participant was recently featured in Columns (The University’s alumni magazine). Check out the story here.
The author’s daughter describes her Lindamood-Bell experience as “challenging and exhilarating” and she was able to make two years of progress in eight weeks time.

Lead investigator Jason D. Yeatman, Ph.D notes, “One thing I can say definitively is that the intensive reading intervention program changes the underlying structure of the brain. That’s something that we’re clearly seeing.”
