Using Genetics to Understand Dyslexia.
Pennington, Bruce F.
Annals of Dyslexia, v39 p81-93 1989
Genetic research has shown that dyslexia is familial, substantially heritable, and heterogeneous in its genetic mechanisms. Evidence also supports the view that the primary symptom in dyslexia is a deficit in the phonological coding of written language, a symptom that appears to be heritable. (Author/JDD)
