The Structure of Genetic Influences on General Cognitive, Language, Phonological, and Reading Abilities.
Hohnen, Bettina; Stevenson, Jim
Developmental Psychology, v35 n2 p590-603 Mar 1999
Examined the etiology of individual differences in literacy, phonological awareness, and language ability in monozygotic and dizygotic twins. Found that there was no genetic link between phonological awareness and literacy independent of general language ability. Individual differences in literacy ability were substantially influenced by genetics factors, some of which also act on phonological awareness and general language ability. (Author/KB)
