Families Needed for SickKids Research Study – Click for more information
SUMMARY: 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.
