Apr 07, 2014

Despite obtaining average scores on standardized IQ tests, having access to education and being raised in stable family environments, some children have difficulties with learning to read. Scientific data suggests that this type of reading disability, known as developmental dyslexia, runs in families and is influenced by genetics. A UHN study has identified changes that occur in a particular gene that could increase a person’s risk of being afflicted by a reading disability.
