Sometimes the research findings and scientific articles can be hard to digest. While we do suggest you read the articles describing the most current research supporting our Intensive Intervention program, we have included below a couple essential images to provide a clear visual of the outcomes.
The above images illustrate the neurological changes that occur following intensive language intervention. In typical readers, the left hemishpere is most active during reading and in individuals with dyslexia the right hemisphere tends to show more activity. People with dyslexia who have gone through the intervention have been shown to increase the activity in the left hemisphere, indicating more typical brain activity. The authors of this study (Simos et al, 2002) concluded that: "After intervention, a dramatic increase in the activation of the left temporoparietal was noted in every child rendering activation profiles very similar to those observed in each of the eght children without reading problems."
