ABSTRACT
The article presents information on a recent Yale University study which reveals that intensive reading lessons can not only improve the ability to read in children suffering from dyslexia , but they can also change the way their brains function. In the study, a group of struggling readers received individual lessons for 50 minutes a day in phonics and phonemic awareness another group of children with the same skill set received the standard help offered by their schools. By the end of the school year, the first group had made significant strides in reading accuracy, fluency, and comprehension, while the second group showed little or no improvement.
