This RFA invites applications to develop new knowledge about the etiologies, developmental courses, and response to instruction characteristics of children, adolescents, and adults with learning disabilities (LDs). The RFA specifically encourages research on the development and validation of classification systems and definitions for LDs affecting oral language abilities related to reading and writing, basic reading skills, reading fluency, reading comprehension, and written expression. Within this context, the RFA encourages research to determine the conditions under which well-defined educational methods, strategies, and approaches prevent and/or remediate LDs in these domains. Studies designed to elucidate neurobiological and genetic factors related to LDs are also encouraged.

Approximately $6.2 million dollars in total costs (Direct costs plus Facilities and Administrative costs) may be awarded in support of this solicitation.

Four to five new and/or competing continuation grants are anticipated.

This RFA will use the NIH Specialized Center Grant (P50) award mechanism.

The P50 supports both research projects and at least one core resource that supports services used by the projects. Synergy among the component research projects is required.

Individuals meeting these characteristics are invited to work with his/her institution to develop an application for support.
