Learning Disabilities Innovation Hubs Program

by:

The National Institutes of Health, more commonly referred to as NIH, is a federal government agency operating within the United States Department of Health and Human Services that is primarily liable for encouraging and financially supporting the country's biomedical and health-related research studies.

The government grants and initiatives of the NIH are all focused on a centralized goal, which is to "seek fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and the application of that knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce the burdens of illness and disability."

In line with this mission, the National Institutes of Health has partnered with the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) to establish the Learning Disabilities Innovation Hubs Program where both agencies intend to solicit resource-related research project grant applications that concentrate on the etiology, manifestation, prevention, and remediation of writing, reading, or mathematics learning disabilities.

The research topic applications that will be covered under this program should be relevant to four research programs of the NICHD: the Language, Bilingualism, and Biliteracy Program; the Early Learning and School Readiness Program; the Mathematics and Science Cognition and Learning: Development and Disorders Program; and the Reading, Writing, and Related Learning Disabilities Program.
