This volume, based on the 25th Rodin Remediation Conference, presents and assesses recent scientific discoveries regarding the etiology and treatment of dyslexia. The Rodin Remediation Academy, founded in 1984, has held 24 conferences and symposia dedicated to research on dyslexia. The 2006 conference program emphasized the role of skill acquisition and learning, a rapidly developing field of neuroscience research, which provides a useful perspective for the study of reading.

The conference was jointly organized by the Rodin Remediation Academy and the Center for the Study of Learning, Georgetown University; and was sponsored by the NICHD, NIDCD and NINDS, National Institutes of Health, as well as by the Nancy Lurie Marks Family Foundation, the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives, Lindamood–Bell Learning Processes, and Wilson Language Training.
