As researchers focus on better understanding the biological causes of dyslexia, they’re also learning how the brain can change. This concept is known as neuroplasticity. After a person with dyslexia receives effective reading instruction, MRI studies show different patterns of brain activation.
What does this mean for your child? With the right help, your child can make real and lasting improvements in reading ability. This window into how the brain “rewires” itself could also help lead to even more ways to help kids with dyslexia in the years to come.
