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.
