reading and the brain 2
People with dyslexia typically use more of the right side of their brain to read, which is illustrated by the orange centers on Peter Oathout’s brain (top). After intensive tutoring, Peter began to use more of the left side of his brain (bottom), which is more typical of good readers. During this time, he moved from reading in the bottom 10th percentile to the 85th.
