Reading a cultural invention by human species is complex cognitive skill. The ventral regions contribute as integrating bottom-up (feed-forward) generic visual processing with top-down influences from phonological and semantic areas. Developmental dyslexia a neurodevelopmental disorder, despite its description since century ago is yet unclear. The heterogeneous deficits, persists and may have emotional-socio-economic consequences. The study shows that if domain specific remediation, tailored according to subject’s neurobiological positive and negative signs along with behavioral measures, it benefits the individuals. Post-training improvement in behavioral performance and reorganizations in neural processing towards normalization, rather than compensatory regions attributed to optimal outcome
