Who we are:
The New England Research Group on Dyslexia is an interdisciplinary community of researchers, educators, clinicians, and policy experts, whose work aims at elucidating the biological, including psychological, and social underpinnings of Developmental Dyslexia and related disorders with the objective of improving prevention, early detection, diagnosis, treatment/intervention and social support (including legal, political, and public health) associated with this learning disability. The NERDY community draws broadly from different academic settings (schools, universities, research institutes) in New England to bring together scholars with a common commitment both to empirical research and to multidisciplinary dialogue.

*The NERDY Conference is sponsored in part by The Institute for the Brain and Cognitive Sciences.
