Research is showing 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.  

Do you suspect your child is “following in your footsteps?”
The earlier children can be professionally diagnosed, the sooner they can seek specialized instruction that will empower them to become successful learners.

Common symptoms of dyslexia or other related language-based learning differences can be categorized broadly in groups:
  • Difficulties with little words
  • Bizarre reading and spelling
  • Late talking
  • Difficulties with handwriting (dysgraphia)
  • Difficulties with math
  • Directional confusion
  • Sequencing difficulties
*Please remember:  For a diagnosis of dyslexia, several symptoms are likely present, persist over time, and interfere with learning.
