Dyslexia

Unsurprising headline of the day: "Dyslexic children exhibit a different pattern of brain activity while reading."

But the UW study the article describes did more than examine that. It tracked changes from treatment, illustrating the brain's ability to normalize over time. Also:

"Most people think dyslexia is a reading disorder, but it is also a spelling and writing problem," said Virginia Berninger. "Our results show that all dyslexics in the 9- to 12-year-old range have spelling problems and children who cannot spell cannot express their ideas in writing."
