Child Research and Study Center
The Child Research and Study Center was founded over 30 years ago under the joint auspices of the University and Albany Medical College to provide diagnostic and consultation services to individuals and agencies on behalf of learning disabled children and to conduct research in the study of learning disabilities and other developmental disorders. It has three major missions: (1) to conduct research in the study of various aspects of normal and abnormal development, especially as related to school learning; (2) to provide training and field experience in research for graduate students; and (3) to provide diagnostic assessment and consultation services on behalf of impaired learners, in support of student training and research. Researchers affiliated with the Center enjoy a national and international reputation, especially in the study of reading development and reading disability (dyslexia). In recent years, research conducted at the Center has been primarily concerned with early identification and early intervention on behalf of children at risk for early reading difficulties.
