Overview of Interests

Sheryl Rimrodt-Frierson is a pediatrician and specialist in neurodevelopmental disabilities. The goal of her work is to better understand the variability and range of reading comprehension difficulties experienced by children and adolescents. She and her colleagues use psychoeducational testing to study the cognitive processes involved in reading comprehension beyond the level of single word reading accuracy and neuroimaging to study the neural correlates (functional, structural, anatomical, and neurochemical) of typical versus poor reading comprehension in children and adolescents.
