Research study on dyslexia changes the life of a participant
The Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences at the University of Washington conducted a study examining growth in reading skills and white matter as a result of intensive reading intervention. MRI data collected during instruction indicates that there were large-scale changes in white matter correlating with the gains in reading. Further, the study identifies white matter tracts that may predict the ease with which a child learns how to read.
