Gilger, Jeffrey W.; And Others
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v3 n3-4 p205-17 Dec 1991
Applies inverse Bayesian analyses to data from three large family studies of reading disability to estimate posterior probability that an offspring will be affected. Finds that offspring risk rates were significantly elevated if a parent reported a history of reading disability. Suggests the use of family history as a component in clinical evaluation. (RS)
