Collaborative Research Area on Learning Disabilities

Coordinator: Virginia Berninger, Ph.D.


The CRA on Learning Disabilities is currently focused on a major translational effort to address a range of learning disabilities. This interdisciplinary research group is working to integrate and translate information on behavioral, genetic, and neurological levels to establish evidence-based interventions with emphasis on phenotypic profiles related to dysgraphia (impaired handwriting), dyslexia (impaired word decoding and spelling), and oral and written language learning disability. Related work focuses on the genetics of speech sound disorder, dyslexia, language impairment, and cognitive endophenotypes such as sequential processing and temporal aspects of processing.
