New findings point to differences in brain structure and function

New research in the fields of neuroscience and neurogenetics is deepening our understanding of the differences in brain structure and function in children with learning and attention issues. Brain scans and other tools are also helping researchers measure the biological impact that instructional interventions have on children with dyslexia and other issues.

As studies expand how we think about and address learning and attention issues, it’s important to note that the science is still emerging and that studies need to be replicated to confirm these findings.
