Welcome to the Dyslexia Research Trust (DRT), an Oxford University based charity investigating new and effective approaches to reading problems. Our focus is on visual and auditory difficulties and how diet and nutrition affects behaviour. We support clinics for research and treatment and we provide unbiased information about dyslexia.
Latest News and Events
Thirty-five world experts assembled for the 3rd Oxford-Kobe symposium at St Catherine's College, University of Oxford. We heard about latest advances in dyslexia genetics, neuroimaging and treatment in different writing systems. Delegates were excited by the great advances that have been made in understanding dyslexia over the last few years, particularly as regards its genetic and neural basis.
