Research shows that dyslexia is genetically based and passed from parents to children. Between twenty-three and sixty-five percent of children with dyslexia have a parent who is dyslexic. It is not uncommon for dyslexia to affect several people in the same family, and most dyslexics will generally have someone else in their extended family who also struggles with dyslexia. The familial nature of dyslexia has been recognized since the beginning of the last century.

His contributions in a wide variety of roles, most recently as director of alumni relations, are beyond measure. Now Mark is looking forward to some well-deserved time off as he transitions to a part-time position. Read More >>
