This study examined passive genotype-environment correlations (GECs) for language related abilities by comparing environment-child language associations in adoptive and nonadoptive families. Findings indicate genetic mediation of the association between home environmental variables with children's language-related abilities. Implications for typical and atypical learners are discussed.
