Familial Resemblance for Measures of Reading Performance in Families of Reading-Disabled and Control Twins.
Alarcon, Maricela; And Others
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v6 n1 p93-101 Mar 1994
Finds that parent-offspring resemblance in families of reading-disabled probands does not differ substantially from that in families of controls; and correlations and regressions for monozygotic twins are greater than those for dizygotic twins, suggesting that individual differences in reading achievement are due in part to heritable influences.
