Washington: Scientists have identified genetic variants that can predispose children to dyslexia and language impairment, a finding that increases the likelihood of earlier diagnosis and more effective interventions. Researchers at Yale School of Medicine analysed data from more than 10,000 children born in 1991-1992 who were part of the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC) conducted by investigators at the University of Bristol in UK. Senior author Dr Jeffrey R Gruen, professor of pediatrics, genetics, and investigative medicine at Yale and his team used the ALSPAC data to unravel the genetic components of reading and verbal language. In the process, they identified genetic variants that can predispose children to dyslexia and language impairment.
