The Center for Reading and Language The Center for Reading and Language Research was established in 1994 by Dr. Maryanne Wolf in the Eliot-Pearson Department of Child Study and Human Development. We are a multi-disciplinary group of researchers dedicated to conducting high quality research on all aspects of reading development.

Along these lines we pursue a multi-componential mission:

  1. To pursue basic knowledge about how the brain learns to read across all ages of development, different languages, and varied forms of reading and learning disabilities;
  2. To apply this knowledge to the learning and well-being of children and adults who struggle to read; and
  3. To disseminate this basic and applied knowledge base through our teaching, research, professional development, clinical practice, publications, and efforts in the greater community.
