Thumbnail to Neuroscience article

AIM's partnership with the Haskins Global Literacy Hub was the first education partnership for the organization of neuroscience researchers. AIM established its IGNITE Center EEG lab in its lab school in early 2019 and began working with Haskins Laboratories researchers on an in-school study examining Predicting Literacy Outcomes in Schools. Haskins researchers will share early results of the study at the IDA Conference in Portland.

In late October, the International Dyslexia Association's Examiner published an article written by Haskins Laboratories researchers and AIM educators describing the potential of research partnerships in greater detail. Read more here.
