Extract. Background. Medicine is rapidly becoming molecular medicine, and little escapes the grasp of modern genetics. Most disorders associated with learning disability have at least a genetic component influencing their expression; in many disorders, disturbances of genetic mechanisms play a pivotal role.

by: Genetics and Learning Disabilities. Edited by S. SMITH. San Diego, Calif.: CollegeHill Press, $ As the title states, this fairly small book focuses on genetic factors involved with learning disabilities, including not only the strengths of genetic analysis but also the limitations.

Last month I wrote about seven children's book authors with dyslexia, speaking to my own personal struggles with learning audience's response was huge, and I think I know why. So many children with learning disabilities are incredibly intelligent — yet because they learn differently, they easily succumb to feelings of inferiority.

Specific reading disabilities are genetically and phenotypically complex neurobehavioral disorders that affect 5–10% of school-aged children, depending on criteria used to make the diagnosis (Shaywitz et al., b; Katusic et al., ).Although anyone with a developmental disability is likely to have difficulty learning to read, specific Cited by:   In the majority of cases, the men who took part in the study showed no other signs of developmental problems apart from their learning disability, according to a report in Nature : Ian Sample.

Given the rapid diffusion of advanced genetic tests for diagnosing DDs or determining their etiology, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) commissioned the ECRI Institute–Penn Medicine Evidence-based Practice.

Genetics. •While learning disabilities tend to run in families, their expression differs in the parent and in the child. •Children who lack skills needed for reading, such as hearing the separate sounds of words, often have a parent with a related problem.
