Families Needed for SickKids Research Study on the Genetics of Reading Disabilities

Families Needed for SickKids Research Study on the Genetics of Reading Disabilities.

The manager of a research study at the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), focusing on Reading Disabilities and Genetics.  Some of you will already be familiar with the study, and have helped get the word out to families in the past (thank you!).  I am writing to you today to let you know that the study is still recruiting children who struggle with reading skills.  As part of their study participation, all children who meet the study’s eligibility criteria get a psycho-educational assessment and a detailed report describing their strengths and weaknesses identified within our battery of tests.  The report can be used to help the family and school make decisions regarding educational planning tailored to the child’s needs.
