Summer Reading Program

A new Cincinnati Children’s study hopes to make a difference for children who struggle with reading and attention problems.

Tzipi Horowitz-Kraus, PhD and Jennifer Vannest, PhD first started the study using brain images to objectively diagnose reading disabilities such as dyslexia. Now they are looking for children ages 8 to 12 to learn more about ways to treat children who have ADHD and also struggle with reading.

As part of the ADHD and Reading Intervention Research Study, kids who sign up will be tested using a functional MRI, which allows researchers to see what part of the brain is more active during certain tasks.
