Families Needed for SickKids Research Study – Click for more information

rsz_istock_000066267175_xxxlargeSUMMARY:  Families are needed for a research study at SickKids (the Hospital for Sick Children), which
is investigating the genetic basis of reading disabilities. They require the participation of families and their child(ren), age 6 to 16 years, who struggle with reading.  Parents will receive a report describing their child’s test results, which may be helpful in educational planning.  All testing will take place at SickKids in downtown Toronto.

For more information, contact the study manager, Kirsten Blokland:
