About the Center for Reading and Language Research

The mission of the Center for Reading and Language Research is threefold:

  • 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;
  • to apply this knowledge to the learning and well-being of children and adults who struggle to read; and
  • to disseminate this basic and applied knowledge base through our teaching, research, professional development, clinical practice, publications, and efforts in the greater community.
