RARE  Summer Research

Reading and Research Education Study 

We are currently looking for young adults with a past or present reading disability or dyslexia diagnosis. If you are interested in learning how the brain works during reading and receiving a personalized reading treatment plan, we are looking for people available in the summer to join our study! Participation will include a total of 4 magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans (two at the beginning and 2 at the end of the program). You will also receive 2 transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) sessions, followed by personalized reading instruction twice per day. In between sessions, you will learn about dyslexia and neuroscience from a research perspective and how to analyze MRI and TMS data gathered from this study. You will receive $20 an hour (up to $2,180) for participation in this study. 

We are looking for people who meet the following qualifications: 

  • Documented diagnosis of a reading disability or developmental dyslexia
