Teaching the Brain to Read by Duncan Milne

Although reading acquisition involves a complex multitude of brain connections, no two readers share exactly the same reading hardware. Each brain’s connections are as individual as a set of fingerprints. Neurological diversity explains the variability in the propensity of different brains to acquire reading. Some brains acquire reading very quickly, and are soon two or more years ahead of their reading age. Other brains find developing reading extremely difficult, no matter how hard they try.
