SickKids research study

Families needed for SickKids research study on the genetics of reading disabilities

SUMMARY:  Families are needed for a research study at SickKids (the Hospital for Sick Children), which is investigating the genetic basis of reading disabilities.  We require the participation of families and their child(ren), age 6 to 16 years, who struggle with reading.  Parents will receive a report describing their child’s test results, which may be helpful in educational planning.  All testing will take place at SickKids in downtown Toronto.
