A focal point of his university based research was why some students had academic learning difficulties. Initially this focus was on how to identify different forms of learning difficulties. Having developed successful diagnostic software, Royer turned to developing procedures for remediating learning difficulties. In order to accomplish this goal Royer opened a clinic at the University of Massachusetts that he called the Laboratory for the Assessment and Training of Academic Skills (LATAS)
Over a 12 year period he worked with students and adults that had been formally diagnosed by outside clinicians as having learning difficulties including dyslexia, dyscalculia, attention deficit disorder, attention deficit disorder with hyperactivity, spectrum disorders (e.g., Asperger Syndrome, autism), and a variety of behavioral disorders. This research resulted in the intervention procedures contained in the Reading Success Lab software. For a complete listing of Royer’s research activities see his Curriculum VITAE.
