The GRaD Study: Genes, Reading & Dyslexia

image 1

The goal of this study is to develop a simple, accurate and inexpensive screening test for dyslexia by examining the connection between genes and reading. This test would help identify children at risk for developing dyslexia early on, perhaps even before they have problems with reading. Early identification of risk for dyslexia would allow children to get the help they need before they have problems in school.

We are enrolling children now through 2014. Visits may be done seven days a week at your family’s convenience and may take place at our research office located at Yale University Medical School in New Haven, CT or at your home. The visit takes approximately 3 hours.
