: DTI at 3T using TBSS suggests lack of age-related maturational changes in dyslexic subjects beyond those reported in adults within the SLF. There are apparent alterations in white matter composition in multiple regions of the brain in children not seen in adults including a critical visual form recognition region at the left temporal-occipital junction which have not previously been reported.
