Researchers, using the technology of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), are now able to image the working brain and literally see the difference in circuitry of dyslexic readers. Brown recently signed into law Assembly Bill 1369 requiring schools to assess struggling readers specifically for dyslexia, which is genetic and affects 1 in 5 students. President Obama recently signed the READ Act (Research Excellence and Advancements for Dyslexia), which requires the National Science Foundation to fund research into early identification of children and students with dyslexia, professional development for teachers and administrators of students with dyslexia, curricula and educational tools needed for children with dyslexia, and implementation and scaling of successful models of dyslexia intervention.
