Read-Right is a practice-based therapy that aims to improve reading speeds in people with Hemianopic Alexia. This is a specific reading disorder related to a visual impairment (hemianopia) usually caused by a stroke or head injury. The main part of the therapy involves reading scrolling text. This induces a change in reading eye movements in people with Hemianopic Alexia, but not in those with slow reading due to another cause.

Developed for the Aphasia Lab at the University College London Institute of Neurology.
