Description: This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) invites exploratory grant applications, hereafter referred to as the Learning Disabilities Innovation Hubs or LD Hubs, addressing the etiology, manifestation, prevention and remediation of reading, writing and/or mathematics specific learning disorders (SLDs). An LD Hub includes a single research project and a Leadership Core that support the goals and aims of the LD Hub. This FOA seeks to serve as a catalyst to understand and address 1) the needs of diverse, under-represented populations in SLD research, 2) the role technology plays in improving or limiting the learning experiences of children with SLD, including the impact of remote learning on service delivery, family stress, and peer socialization, 3) investigate more complex behavioral phenotypes of learners in SLD research, 4) speed the maturation of nascent/novel, high-impact, high-risk SLD studies that advances research on SLDs and demonstrate potential to directly benefit the SLD community, policy or practice, and 5) provide project embedded, career enhancing research and professional development opportunities to support the next generation of SLD scientists. This initiative provides opportunities to support planning and building of a body of research and corresponding intellectual infrastructure to enable P20 grantees to compete for large research and program project opportunities in the future. This FOA aims to integrate research topics that are of relevance to various research programs at the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and align with the NICHD Strategic Plan. The FOA intends to build cross-programmatic, trans-disciplinary and crosscutting scientific research and critically nurture the development of early career researchers capable of conducting this research.
