the Study of Orthographic Learning

Project description

Checking the relationship between spelling and reading

Orthographic learning (OL) describes the progression of reading from a system heavily reliant on alphabetic decoding to one that involves word recognition. Understanding how OL works is key to improving literacy and assisting children who may be struggling with literacy acquisition. The EU-funded SOL project will explore whether OL-Spelling (the skill of learning how to spell a word) may not be related to OL-Reading (the ability to automatise the reading of a word). To answer this question, the project will carry out a multidisciplinary study using cutting-edge neuroimaging technology. It will also assess whether the neural correlates of OL differ depending on the type of OL being assessed.
